Crawford

Appleby Gardens Luxury Residences by LJM Developments brings to you a great list of activities and events to keep your little ones busy this March Break! Do not keep them cooped up inside, get them out enjoying the weather with great winter sports, or take them to plenty of the events happening in and around Burlington. Find your favourite below and book early.

  1. Maple Syrup Festival

Bronte Creek Provincial Parks starts to tap trees at the beginning of March just in time for March break and an amazing Canadian past time. The Maple Syrup Festival runs every weekend in March and offers tours, how to make syrup and the ability to travel back in time with 1890’s costumed interpreters demonstrating the art of making maple taffy and candy.

  1. More Maple

Just in case the festival at Bronte Creek is not enough natural sugar for your little ones, Mountsberg and Crawford Lake Conservation Areas offer Maple Syrup Festival weekends in their amazing Maple Town activities. At Crawford Lake you can take in the 15th Century Iroquoian village and offer a little cultural learning experience on the sly.

  1. Skiing at Glen Eden

Looking for an active event that will get your children out in the beautiful countryside enjoying the fresh outdoors? Skiing at the nearby Glen Eden is a great idea, weather permitting.

  1. Royal Botanical Gardens

There are two events at the RBG Centre during March Break that may appeal to young children and those interested in Music. Jazz Brunches on the 13th and 20th of March provide a great introduction to this genre of music with a bite to eat while Reptile Rendezvous gives young kids a great experience with pythons, alligators and turtles. Week long discovery camps for ages 4-13 are also available.
