Amanda ArmstrongColumnist / Weekend Roundup
With May just around the corner, the weather has warmed from the snow and ice of a few short weeks ago and we can finally pack away our winter jackets. Going outside has become a whole lot more hospitable – and just in time, as there is plenty to get out and do this weekend in Ottawa!
Welcome to the last of the winter weekends—although it might not feel like it, with all the snow we’ve been getting and a dip into colder temperatures over the weekend. Despite spring’s clever disguise, be sure to get out there and celebrate its arrival. There are plenty of exciting goings on in this fine city, to help you do it right!
The great melt is upon us and, perhaps, the groundhog was wrong this year. With spring in your step, take the bull by the horns: the weekend is front loaded this time round, with plenty going on this Thursday and Friday. So much so that you’ll appreciate the slower Saturday to rest up and regroup for the week to come.
The first of our February weekends has arrived and it is bursting at the seams with great goings on in this incredible city. From art openings, to dance parties, to the anxiously awaited opening of Winterlude, this weekend is chock full of fun. Have a look through our list of this weekend’s highlights and get planning—you won’t want to miss out on any of it!
