I Love Burnsville Week is June 2-9
How do residents love Burnsville? City officials hope a host of community-based activities will have them counting the ways.
This year’s I Love Burnsville Week includes so many events, it can’t be contained to a week (click here for a schedule). It kicked off May 18 and 19 with a communitywide garage sales and closes Saturday, June 9, with a family music and book festival at the Performing Arts Center and a musical “Meltdown” at The GARAGE teen center.
The city launched I Love Burnsville Week in 2008 as a showcase of events, amenities and city services in Burnsville.
“It’s a celebration of Burnsville, and it’s reconnecting neighborhoods,” Deputy City Manager Tom Hansen said at the time. “It’s promoting community. It’s celebrating youth. And it’s promoting healthy cities. It’s an opportunity for us to concentrate a lot of things into one week, where we can do a lot to accomplish goals the (City Council) has for Burnsville.”
