Around the World in 30 Days

 

March is a great month to scrape off the winter frost and travel the world – especially when you can do it all in one magical trip to Greater Burlington. Here are some ideas for a spring tour that will take you from Ireland to New Orleans, from bulls to Mardi Gras, from the Caribbean to … 1959?

Bull Riding
You don't have to go to Texas to experience all the thrills of a night of bull riding. Burlington SnowBull, voted Event of the Year two years running by the Central Bull Riders Association, is the real deal with cowboys from all around the Midwest. Friday and Saturday's ticket also includes admission to the after party with great live country bands.
