The city of Burlington, proclaiming the August Civic Holiday as Joseph Brant Day, paid tribute to the famous Mohawk Chief in Lasalle Park on August 6th. Brant was one of Burlington’s original settlers during the early 1800s. Visitors were able to enjoy live performances, take advantage of a food truck rally and a large market of local vendors and artisans. Many guests ventured into the wading pool to find relief from the blistering heat.
