Behind the scenes, the host Burlington Runners come together to make sure that this weekend event is memorable for all.

Experience Sir Allan MacNab’s kitchen in the historic, and iconic Dundurn Castle this Saturday from 10am – 12pm. Led by costumed staff, visitors will explore over 40 rooms and discover the history of the MacNab family and the servants who lived and worked below stairs to support their affluent lifestyle. In the 19th century servants were employed in large homes like Dundurn to do a variety of tasks such as washing, dusting, polishing and cooking. Assisted by Dundurn’s Cook Demonstrators, guests will work together to make a traditional recipe in the historic kitchen.

Farm Crawl Hamilton is this Saturday. Meet the growers, the farmers and the animals at this annual event that is fun for the whole family. Farm Crawl is an opportunity to get an inside look at the operations of many farms in Hamilton and the surrounding area. You choose which farms to visit and the ordering of the farms. Each farm is family run and your experience is designed by the farm. Please note that several of the farms on the farm crawl maintain regular hours when they are open to the public.

Are you one of the lucky ones who is seeing Cirque du Soleil: Corteo performed this weekend at the FirstOntario Centre? Corteo, which means cortege in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical world of fun, comedy and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.
