WEEKEND EVENTS IN BURLINGTON: JUNE 2 – 4, 2017

Listen…do you hear the buzz? Is that excitement…or is that an electric guitar? It’s June, it’s sunny, it’s warm and the Sound of Music…it’s almost here!! The Kickoff Concert explodes the waterfront on Saturday June 10th – get your tickets here.

And just today, an extra day of free concerts was announced for June 11th, with hometown Walk Off the Earth headlining. The festival will continue with its clubs series, street party and more concerts at the waterfront right on through until June 18th!

This is going to be amazing.

Not so amazing is our submerged beach. The lake is still at record levels and there is no beachfront. Here’s hoping it gets back to fantastic soon and in time for summer break.

And finally, I want to mention the The Meredith Hagan Inspiration Run taking place on Saturday, June 24th at Mounstberg Conservation Area. Not only is it a great tribute and for a great cause, it has also been voted Ontario’s number 1 trail run! Register now and start training yesterday.
