Plenty of Summer Events in Burlington from July-September 2019

Movies under the stars header

We always look forward to the warmer temperatures of the summer that encourage us to get outside and enjoy it all. There is no shortage of special events planned in Burlington from July-September 2019.

To date, a total of 32 Love My Hood events have been held across our city with 44 more currently scheduled over the summer months. Burlassic Park hosting the Toronto Raptor’s NBA Finals run on the large outdoor screens turned out to be very popular events and an overall welcome addition, according to City of Burlington staff, and drew in average crowds of approximately 2,500 (when the weather was favourable) and more than than 4,500 people in Spencer Smith Park for the final game, which was hosted by the Sound of Music Festival.

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
