Weekend Roundup: Quoi faire?

It is Ottawa’s favourite season, friends: festival season! Coming hard on the heels of Jazzfest is our world-famous Bluesfest. Mix in the Lebanese Festival and the Stewart Park festival in Perth and you have got one perfect 613 weekend. Enjoy the sunshine and hit the beach, support a local patio, or take in any of the amazing musical acts happening around the city.
