Burlington’s downtown came alive with the 40th Sound of Music festival from June 8th to the 16th. The annual Streetfest, carnival rides, vendors, Grand Festival parade and FREE concerts drew crowds from far and wide. The Brant Street restaurants built little patio areas so patrons could dine al fresco and not miss any action. There was continuous music from multiple bands, like the Matthew Good Band and there was dancing in the streets. Oakville’s Belly Up featured belly dancing demos on Brant Street. Artists painted, youngsters hoola hooped, and car buffs viewed a display of vintage vehicles. Multiple activities kept everyone well entertained.
This waterfront festival continues to grow year after year, bringing people together and creating lasting memories.
