Welcome to another beautiful summer weekend in the city.
A local brewery’s July 1st party at the Experimental Farm is also serving food from 20 or so restaurants. Jim Bryson and Amanda Rheaume headline the all-Canadian music lineup.
A grand structure, the Dominion Observatory, commands high ground at the Central Experimental Farm near Carling Avenue.
