Announcements

Bruce Trail partially reopens to public

The Bruce Trail Conservancy will be reopening about 85 per cent of the trail starting June 2. Still, the conservancy has imposed several restrictions on the public when they are using the trail because of the coronavirus pandemic.

No fireworks in Dundas this Victoria Day weekend

There will be no fireworks lighting up the sky at the Dundas Driving Park this Victoria Day weekend. The annual fireworks display has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event, which also includes live music and food trucks, is put on by the Dundas Valley Sunrise Rotary Club and City of Hamilton.

Six major Hamilton trails set to reopen Saturday, May 9 

People will once again be able to hike, bike and take dogs on leashed walks on major trails through Hamilton conservation areas. Hamilton Conservation Authority directors unanimously approved reopening six local trails on May 9 following a closed-door session at their May 7 meeting.

Hamilton has followed other municipalities and the federal government by cancelling Canada Day celebrations July 1 because of the ongoing effort to combat the coronavirus pandemic. “A tradition we are well accustomed to will not be happening this year,” said Mayor Fred Eisenberger, May 1.

Bruce Trail Conservancy chief executive officer Michael McDonald is urging people not to use its trails during the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement on the conservancy's website posted March 27, McDonald wants individuals to postpone any walks or hikes on the popular trail system to minimize the spread of the virus. 

"We realize that we cannot close-off the Bruce Trail," he states. "We cannot bar access to all trailheads nor enforce closures. We can, and do, however, urge everyone to please stay away from the Bruce Trail until further notice." 

Closures

The coronavirus also has resulted in the cancellation of many events, like the Ancaster Fair, Canada Day festivities, Festival of Friends — normally held in mid-August, Winona Peach Festival and Stoney Creek Santa Claus Parade — to name a few.

In addition, it's forced restrictions at Hamilton and Burlington hospitals and led to the cancellation of and uncertainty for a variety of events, including Hamilton Cat Fanciers’ annual show at the Ancaster FairgroundsDundas International Buskerfest and the Dundas Valley School of Art’s Art Auction and Concession Streetfest and the May and June editions of Sidewalk Sounds on Hamilton Mountain.
