Most of the heritage organization exhibiting were in a large tent.
Ottawa Branch OGS reported a slow but steady stream of visitors. Doug Gray and Mike More are seen from behind the stand which was near that for Canadian Blood Services - DNA anyone?
Mayor Jim Watson was on hand, now without crutches, making presentations to various "militiamen."
I stopped by the table for the Ottawa Branch, Ontario Archaeological Society. August is Archeology Month with an exhibit at City Hall. Checkout the website at http://www.ottawaoas.ca/
