Showing the LOVE
Posted: Oct 21, 2013

We’ve been roaming the downtown asking folks why they LOVE their downtown. It’s been a lot of fun so far with such an overwhelming and enthusiastic response by everyone. So tell us yourself — What do you LOVE about your Burlington Downtown?

Check back to this post for the  Shop the Hood Gallery we’re building to host some of this love. And also keep an eye out for the references and hash tags in your social media of choice to see what you all have to say.


We love downtown Burlington for so many reasons… the people, the food, the fashion, the great spaces…. but we want to know what you love, what makes THE HOOD a place you love to be.

Finish the sentence “I ♥ OUR HOOD because….” in words, a picture, a video – however you want to tell us.

Share the love. Tell us in any way you can — Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Video, Images, Email. It all works!

Look for hashtags — #shopthehoodBurl

Then join us for our Downtown Burlington lovefest on Saturday November 30th when Downtown businesses will show their LOVE by offering promotions and special features as part of SHOP THE NEIGHBOURHOOD Celebrations. It’s our way of sharing the LOVE with you.


We don’t want to miss any of your Love… so make sure your emails, posts, tweets etc. include

  • the words “I ♥ THE HOOD
  • the hashtag #shopthehoodBurl

Have Fun – creativity counts!!!

Enter as many times as you like. We will be randomly awarding prizes every week throughout November.
