Went for the Winter Lights festival. Probably that's nothing much special during the night time but for me it was quite an experience as I liked the light up decoration. It runs from February till April. Can drop by if you are visiting Burlington Town.

Church street marketplace was great to stroll along and just take everything in. Great atmosphere, lots of shops to choose from and you can see down to the lake in certain spots.

Closed to vehicles with the exception of the through streets, Burlington’s historic Church Street offers a mix of shopping and dining. A fun way to spend an afternoon, there are plenty of coffee shops, boutiques and restaurants to keep you occupied.
