This Weekend In and Around Burlington: March 24-26, 2017

It’s Springtime!!! And what does that mean? It means that one day you can be sitting and enjoying a beverage at an outdoor patio, and the next day you can be grabbing your snow pants and board because a foot of snow just made a day on the hills possible.

If you have no idea what I am talking about, then you are not from around here.

Hey…spring does not last long. So why not take advantage of this dichotomy of weather…and get out there and enjoy a broad spectrum of activities while you can! (Speaking of which, don’t forget the sunscreen).

The slopes are still calling! Head out while the conditions are still good at Glen Eden for a day of boarding/skiing/tubing before the summer campers take over the park.

And spring cleaning is undoubtedly on all of our minds. Feels good, right? Well, as beautiful as it already is, our city could also use a bit of a spring cleaning. Why not register for the Burlington Green Cleanup and help make Burlington shimmer. (Sign up now…clean up is on Earth day/April 22, 2017.)

Also, a special mention to the Rotary Club who is having their annual Lobster Fest on May 27th. Join them for an evening of great entertainment and delicious food, and all for a great cause. Tickets are available now.

There is so much do to in town this weekend. Take a look…and have a great one, Burlington!
