The Ottawa Grassroots Festival (OGF) is pleased to confirm that multi-award winning Franco-Ontarian artist, Dayv Poulin (Le Paysagiste), will headline the opening night (April 25) at the festival in Old Ottawa South. The event will take place April 25-28, 2019 at Southminster United Church, 15 Aylmer Avenue, Ottawa.
Despite the cold weather and abundance of snowbanks lining our streets, spring is just around the corner. Our OSCA team has been preparing its spring program lineup since early January and we’re really excited about some of the new programs we’re offering.
Due to the weather warning for Ottawa, the Firehall will be closed on Wednesday morning until NOON (Wednesday, February 13th).
Morning programs will be cancelled including:
A creative snow sculpture graces a front yard on Bellwood near Sunnyside.
Anyone living in Old Ottawa South will appreciate the privilege of having an off-leash dog park. There’s nothing like the freedom to run, sniff, play, and to swim without a leash holding you back! As a pet owner, my little Kenny has enjoyed this privilege since we moved into the neighborhood in the spring of 2017. With this freedom comes pet-owner responsibility, to ensure your dog can be controlled and will not harm other dogs or humans. This includes the responsibility to train your dog especially if your dog is not friendly or is aggressive towards other dogs or humans; otherwise, stay away from an off-leash dog park or muzzle your dog.
The Cup is back. After last year’s cancellation due to warm, slushy weather, the annual Capital Ward Cup returned in full force January 26th under the tutelage of newly inaugurated City Councillor Shawn Menard. The Old Ottawa South Moose played a characteristically strong tournament but fell 6-3 in the final to the perennial favourites, the Old Ottawa East Hosers.
