#BurlON til November 7
The Halloween and harvest events have come to an end, but there’s still plenty to see and do, including live performances, arts and crafts, and exploring our many conservation areas. Check out all the fun things going on in #BurlON this week.
Get out into nature
The cold weather is creeping in, but that’s no excuse not to enjoy the great outdoors! Visit one of the many conservation areas in Burlington for a hike, a bike ride, or just a nice picnic! See the escarpment light up with fall colours from Rattlesnake Point, or see birds of prey at the Raptor Centre in Mountsberg.
The Royal Botanical Gardens is hosting the third annual Tea Festival Saturday November 3 and Sunday November 4. Sample teas from around the world while learning about tea culture, history, and taste.

Art in Action
This weekend is also the 16th annual Art in Action Burlington Studio Tour.
