The August long weekend is packed with more events than you can possibly attend—but you should give it your best try. Here’s the long-Weekend Roundup.
Ottawa Roller Derby
Welcome to the weekend folks! Hopefully you’ve recovered from Bluesfest because we’ve got a jam packed weekend up ahead!
Want to know the different kinds of roller skating and where to try it? I’ve got you covered!
There are some new outdoor activities to enjoy this weekend. We are now able to kick a soccer ball around, play a round of disc golf, shoot some hoops, or pop an ollie at the skate parks. Picnics are also now a thing. While we agree that this is very exciting news, please make sure that you enjoy these newfound freedoms safely and respectfully, while keeping your distance from others.
Some of us are over a month into this alternate normal of isolation, shaggy hair and bread making. As we settle into new routines, and are already dreaming of sunny patios and high fives there is no right or wrong way to be getting through this.
Consider this part three in our new series of “how to spend your time when the days of the week all feel the same”.
Jumping into the world of derby: Ottawa Roller Derby’s fall season features includes a crash course for beginners and a roller disco party
After a busy summer, the Ottawa Roller Derby league has exciting plans for the fall, including an old-fashioned roller disco fundraiser and a crash course as a chance for beginners interested in learning to roller skate for roller derby.
It’s technically the first weekend of spring, so the sun should be shining, the puddles will be forming, and Ottawaians (Ottawans?) may start to feel like spring will actually happen!
While this October’s Friday the 13th will no doubt be a time for early Halloween parties, dancing ghoulishly, and watching movies about men with chainsaws and too much free time, it will also be a great weekend to enjoy fall weather as Ottawa gears down from its perennially overwhelming festival season.
It may be one of the rainiest summers we’ve had in a while, but don’t let that stop you from getting out and enjoying all the activities this weekend! Summer favourites like the light show at Parliament Hill are back, it’s the final weekend of Bluesfest, and Canada Scene has shows aplenty! Enjoy!
