Discover Burlington Ontario

#BurlON Oct 25-Nov 2

by Kelly Harris

It’s the last weekend before Hallowe’en and hopefully you have your costume ready! There are lots of events that you can take part in this weekend to get into the Hallowe’en spirit.

Little ghosts, goblins and most likely supermen and princesses will be taking over the downtown streets for the annual Treats in our Streets event, run by the Burlington Downtown Business Association. There will be bouncy castles, a petting zoo, free hot chocolate and of course lots of treats so don’t miss this fun event from 11am-2 pm.

The Streetcar Museum is holding a Hallowe’en Spooktacular on Saturday from 6:30-10 pm. Wear a costume and enjoy a fun night visiting the haunted car born and going for a squeaky ride on the trails. They close for the season on Sunday, so if you can’t make Saturday night you can go on Sunday for a visit before they close.

Saturday and Sunday Mountsberg Conservation is holding their Spooktacular Hallowe’en from 10-4. Don’t miss out on the fun of a spooky barn, Birds of Prey demonstrations, live snake presentations, face painting and more. Can’t make it during the day? Visit Mountsberg Saturday night from 7-9 pm for their Pajama Night – Creatures of the Night. Wear your costume – listen to the sounds of the night, learn about some outdoor creatures, enjoy a campfire and smores! Yum!

Check out our Hallowe’en blog for more details and great events!

The Halton Pumpkins to Pastries Trail wraps up October 31st, so it’s your last weekend to explore. View the online map for participating locations and offers. Post a picture to social media using #p2ptrail and you could win a great prize basket!

Sunday visit the Royal Botanical Gardens for the City Parent Family Show, running 10am-3pm. Wear your costume and enjoy a pumpkin hunt, live entertainment and face painting.

It’s the last weekend for the Harvest Festival at Springridge Farm. I took the kids and we had a lot of fun – enjoyed the Boo Barn, puppet show, tractor ride, corn maze, BBQ and of course the amazing gift shop and baked treats! It’s on Saturday and Sunday from 10am-4pm.

Not really in the Hallowe’en spirit this week? That’s okay – lots of other great things to do! It’s the last week for the Burlington Mall Farmers Market which wraps up Saturday. It is open Wednesday and Saturday 8am -2pm and Friday 8am-4pm.

 

Some great shows on at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre this week. Barenaked Ladies play their Canada 1 Five 0 Tour Thursday pm (sold out), Patricia O’Callaghan sings Leonard Cohen on Friday, and Sophie Milman is there Saturday.

Hoping for another weekend where we can enjoy the outdoors. Get active and enjoy a  cycle or hike along one of the many multi-use trails from beginner to advanced.   Burlington offers the perfect location to cycle or hike along one of the many multi-use trails from beginner to advanced. Scale the escarpment at Rattlesnake Point or Mount Nemo or get some late season camping in at one of our area campgrounds including Bronte Creek Provincial ParkKOA Toronto West or Conservation Halton.
