Celebrate Col. By Day

In Ottawa we celebrate the Ontario Civic holiday as Col. By Day after the British Royal Engineer responsible for the construction of the Rideau Canal.

Ottawa's heritage is celebrated by an event alongside the canal and centered on the Bytown Museum, an event now part of the larger Rideau Canal Festival. almost every local heritage organization will have a presence on site.

The weather forecast is good and I expect to be on-site in the afternoon. I hope to see you there.
