This weekend rests on the cusp of May into June and is jam packed full of fun. A weekend so full, it is impossible to do it all, so we’ve put together this handy little guide to the weekend’s best. Get a pen and paper ready: it’s time to plan and maximize on the good times.
The month of May has just blown by, and this weekend is going to be just as packed as every other weekend since the sun reappeared! The Tulip Festival is officially over, but tulips are still blooming all over the city, making for another colourful spring weekend. Get out there to enjoy them, and check out different corners of the city for some cool happenings.
Down in Ottawa, we like to refer to this time of the year as six-one-three season, or “61threeson.” You know what I’m talking about: it’s the time of year just after the tulips close, and summer hasn’t quite happened, but it’s warm and the city has awoken to a deluge of events, events, events.
Watch out Ottawa, it’s time for Canada’s biggest marathon weekend. Whether this means you’re running, cheering or navigating road closures, the city comes alive with runners from around the world. Enjoy the atmosphere, not to mention everything else happening this jam-packed weekend!
