Activities

Every year, the Let’s Get Hillsburgh Growing Committee is responsible for:

  • The hanging baskets and planters that adorn Trafalgar Road during the summer
  • Replacing the hanging baskets in the winter with wreaths
  • The colourful laser-cut steel signs that hang on the hydro poles on Trafalgar Road. This multi-year project is almost complete and has created a striking streetscape for Hillsburgh.
  • Spirit of the Hills, Hillsburgh’s Family Fun Day.   Since 2006, the LGHG Committee has presented this fun-filled event on the main street of Hillsburgh.  Held on the third Saturday of August, Spirit of the Hills Day includes a classic car show, children’s games, musical entertainment and vendors.
  • Entrance signs.  The LGHG Committee is currently in the process of selecting a design for and fundraising for new entrance signs to the village.
