“Great events such as Burlington’s New Year’s Day event offer residents a chance to play,” said Chris Glenn, director of parks and recreation. “This free event offers a variety of opportunities to be active and start that New Year’s resolution on a day when many businesses are closed. We’re pleased to team up with some great sponsors and community partners so families can come out and spend time together on New Year’s Day.”
The event features screenings of The Lego Movie presented by Safari Children’s Dentistry in the Community Rooms at 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Try Lego activities with Bricks 4 Kidz and crafts with Momstown.
