After what seemed like neverending rain, cool weather, and grey skies, the sun is finally out and it looks like it will be sticking around and bringing warmer temperatures this weekend. While we may still be in lockdown mode here in Ottawa, this is a chance to get outside and enjoy our beautiful city, keeping safely away from others. The virtual events, which have become the norm, are in shorter supply, but there is still plenty to do to turn your mood around and we’ve got some great ideas to help get your weekend started.
This year’s Ottawa Jazz Festival will be a virtual event from August 19 to 22. Organizers say they could also introduce pop-up concerts throughout the city, if permitted closer to the time.

Whether you’re fitting in some shopping or enjoy the sights, this weekend has plenty of fun holiday options.
