The party will feature many of your favourite local mascots, free indoor and outdoor family activities, as well as free coffee and hot chocolate, compliments of Tim Hortons Restaurants (while supplies last). You can take the Healthy Kids Community Challenge water pledge and you may even see:

  • Eccentric Adam’s dinosaurs

The Time Capsule Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Canada will be on display. The capsule includes artefacts to serve as a reminder to future generations of what it meant to live in Ottawa in 2017, Canada’s sesquicentennial year. It will be opened again in 2067, during Canada’s bicentennial year.


Mayor Watson will lace up his skates for the first time this season, at approximately 11:45 a.m.
