As it starts to feel like summer, we all want to find something to do outdoors and this weekend is full of opportunities to do just that. The Gloucester Fair is happening this weekend. Enjoy a "Smoked to the Bone" BBQ competition, Petting Zoo, Pony Rides, Monster Truck rides and more!

This weekend is a weekend of good will, the Glebe welcomes you to their 25th anniversary of the Great Glebe Garage Sale, The GCA asks that vendors donate 10% of their sales to the Ottawa Food Bank. The Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind will host Dollars for Dogs. It’s a 4-km walk for all dog lovers and their canine friends, followed by a BBQ and dog social in Andrew Haydon Park. If a walk in the park or garage sale is not what you want to do this weekend, then how about a Pirate Adventures with The Children’s Wish Foundation? There will be numerous activities for both children and adults alike: face painting, a barbeque, storytelling, children's games, contests and 45 minute adventure sails!
