Here in Ottawa, May is in full bloom and the city is in a buzz with things to do. If you are looking for a place to spend your afternoon, or just want to see what’s for sale, then check out some of the sale events this weekend. Metcalfe Co-op Nursery School is holding the GIANT Spring Garage Sale, and the Grade 7/8 Entrepreneur Club at Steve MacLean PS is hosting the Rugrats Rummage Sale , they are both going to be a fun time.

Don’t want to go shopping this weekend; then why not attend some of the more charitable events. This weekend the Ottawa Walk for Lupus is in full stride. This event serves as a chance for patients, families and friends to come together to raise money and awareness while walking in support of lupus. Or ladies you could attend Bring back the 80’s – Part Deux and party all night. Hosted by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, this party is a LADIES ONLY EVENT featuring: Fantasia Diva, karaoke all night, DJ Hot Rod from Quality Entertainment and much more.

If shopping, walking and a party don’t sound like your way to spend this weekend? Don’t worry, you can catch “the most important musical of the decade” (New York Times) Spring Awakening. Or you can go to a showcase of Electric Vehicles at the EV EXPO! There is no shortage of things to do in Ottawa this weekend.
