Happy February, friends! With that Polar Vortex almost behind us, and the temperature soon to climb above the freezing mark (fingers crossed that my weather app is telling the truth), it is time to get out of the house and explore our local communities this weekend. Keep reading to find out what is happening in your local neighbourhoods, and start planning your weekend fun!
Take your little ones to Ancaster High School’s Theatre Auditorium for The Little Mermaid Jr. and experience this magical underwater story of young mermaid, Ariel. Watch Theatre Ancaster’s Stage 2 Jr. Broadway Company bring this underwater Disney classic to life. Showtimes are 7:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and matinee at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.
Spend the day exploring Burlington – from the Art Gallery of Burlington, to the shops, cafes and restaurants on Brant Street, to walking along the waterfront, and then catching a show at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre – there’s always something to do and see in this city.
Spend Saturday at Gage Park for the first-ever Hamilton Winterfest. Nestled in the woods, this full-day, free pop-up event features live music, the HPL Bookmobile for story-telling, a cozy custom fire pit, tasty food, hot drinks, and more. If you can’t make it to Winterfest this weekend, catch it in Waterdown at Memorial Park next Saturday.
The weekend is the perfect time to partake in a bit of comfort food, a time to relax, laugh and enjoy some tasty eats. Like so tasty, that the Food Network’s, You Gotta Eat Here, told fans to eat here, so head to Memphis Fire Southern Barbeque for authentic southern food. Tip: Get an order of the ranch fries – they’re worth it!
A perfect way to spend a weekend day is by visiting Clappison Corners Antiques just up highway 6. Shop long lost treasures, revamp a living space with once loved furniture waiting to be loved again, or simply walk around, as this place is essentially a museum, but you can buy what you see. Open 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. daily.
