#BurlON til May 23
It is the first long weekend of the summer season and there are lots of things to see and do in beautiful #BurlON.
Our visitor centre receives lots of calls before Victoria Day weekend asking where they can see fireworks. Unfortunately there are no public firework displays in the city however you can visit Woodbine – Mohawk Park Racetrack on Saturday May 19 for Fireworks & Family Night. Also Dundas Driving Park has an annual fireworks display on Sunday May 20. Check their websites if rain in case there is postponements.
Why not catch a live show? Catch Curtains at Drury Lane Theatre – a ‘whodunit’ style mystery.
Get outdoors and enjoy! Discover Lilacs at the RBG from 10-4. It runs daily until May 27. RBG is offering a Wildlfower Walk on Sunday at 1:30 and a Jazz brunch with Aaron Bowers Trio on Sunday – a perfect outing if you missed going out with Mom last weekend. Check their website for times and details.
Take me out to the ballgame….it’s the Burlington Herd playing Barrie on Thursday and Hamilton on Saturday at Nelson Park so root for the home team – Go #BurlON!
Learn how to make and enjoy a proper Victorian Tea at Bronte Creek Provincial Park on Sat. May 19 & Sun May 20 at 2 pm. The Victorian home and living history museum make the perfect setting. After tea enjoy a hike in Bronte Creek Provincial Park and let the kids explore the playbarn and visit the farm animals.
The All Guilds Show continues at the Art Gallery until May 21. Enjoy a stroll through the beautiful gallery and check out their amazing gift shop one of our favorite places to get unique Canadian gifts.
The Burlington Mall Lions Farmers Market is open for the season and celebrating 60 years. Visit them in the south parking lot at Prospect Street on Wednesdays 8-2, Fridays 8-4 and Saturday 8-2 until the end of October. Centro Market in downtown Burlington runs every Sunday from 9 am-noon. This is a great community market – grab a coffee and browse the market, then enjoy a stroll through beautiful Downtown Burlington.
