Weekend Roundup – March 22, 2019

Posted: March 22, 2019

Happy weekend, friends, but most importantly, happy spring! It is finally here. Let’s forget about those dark and dreary winter days, and start daydreaming about patio season, gardening, spring cleaning (yes, the crew at Team Smulders loves a good spring clean), outdoor activities, and so much more. So what are you waiting for, get out and explore what our communities have to offer this weekend.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the annual Hamilton Spring Home & Garden Show on Saturday, April 6th. Team Smulders will be onsite from 1-4pm to chat all things house and home related. Contact the team for your free VIP tickets to the show!

Ancaster
Visit Fieldcote Memorial Park and Museum, a cultural heritage centre with an emphasis on the collection, preservation and exhibition of local history, and the promotion of fine arts. Built in 1948 by Tom, the editor-in-chief of the Hamilton Spectator from 1966 to 1969, and Doris Farmer, this Tudor-style English cottage sits on seven acres of farmland overlooking the main street of Ancaster. Learn the history of this remarkable building. Open Tuesdays – Saturdays.

Burlington
Looking for something tasty to do this Saturday evening, and support a good cause? Get your tickets to the  Ultimate Chef Gala  hosted by the  Bereaved Families of Ontario  – South Central Region. All proceeds from this annual gala support BFO programs. This year’s event takes at the Burlington Convention Centre and features 15 local chefs competing for the title of Ultimate Chef. Chefs compete in the categories of Best Appetizer, Best Soup and Best Entree. Attendees sample their delicious dishes, and then vote for the favourite dish, while BFO’s Guest Judges vote for the 2019 Ultimate Chef.

 

Do you need brunch plans for this Sunday? Head to the Royal Botanical Gardens for their  Jazz Brunch Concert Series to enjoy a delicious brunch complemented by the tranquillity of the historic Rock Garden and the sweet sounds of live entertainment. Reservations required.

Hamilton
Shen Yun  is performing in Hamilton this weekend at the First Ontario Concert Hall. Shen Yun performs classical Chinese dance, ethnic and folk dance, and story-based dance, with orchestral accompaniment and solo performers. For 5,000 years, divine culture flourished in the land of China. Through breathtaking music and dance, Shen Yun is reviving this glorious culture. Shen Yun can be translated as, “the beauty of divine beings dancing.”

Stoney Creek
Experience unique storefronts and small town charm in downtown Stoney Creek this weekend. Shop artisan and one of a kind gifts, unique home decor, beauty and wellness products, toys, and more. Indulge in a delicious lunch, or dinner at Edgewater Manor, a fine dining establishment in a 1920s mansion overlooking Lake Ontario.

Open Houses
Life is better on the beach, Beach Boulevard to be exact. Stop by 916 Beach Blvd and 920 Beach Blvd in Hamilton this Sunday for two open houses that you won’t want to miss. 916 is a four-bedroom, four-bath that has been newly renovated, spacious and lots of natural light (#dreamhome). 920 Beach Blvd is another stunner that current home buyers need to visit. This four-bedroom, 4+1 bath is steps from the beach, newly updated, with an open concept on the main floor, and plenty of living space on the second floor. These two homes are must-sees, and you don’t want to miss out on the chance to call one of these houses your dream home.
