Parks & Recreation Restarting Children’s Shows, Concerts on the Common and Family Movie Nights

By: Rich Hosford

Looking to get out of the house and enjoy some entertainment in a safe, social distancing, way? 


The Burlington Parks & Recreation Department has restarted its Children’s Shows, Concerts on the Common and Family Movie Nights, though there are some restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 


“A lot of planning and working with the Board of health went into this to be able to provide events with social distancing in place up and running again,” Parks & Recreation Director Brendan Egan said. “Holding these event is important for people.” 


The biggest change is that pre-registration is required and each event is limited to 100 people. Each family will be given a 10-foot ring where they can be socially distanced from others and each ring can hold up to 10 family members. When arriving or leaving the Town Common, families are asked to use only the walkway coming from Town Hall. Direct contact with performers is strictly prohibited. 


Also, face coverings are required when residents are unable to maintain physical distancing.  


“Come prepared with a mask and be prepared to social distance and have a good time,” Egan said. 


The restrooms in the Town Hall Annex will be available for those who need them. There is still no charge. 


The Children’s Shows are on Mondays at 6:30 p.m. Concerts on the Common are on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. and the Family Movie Nights start at dusk on Wednesdays.
