Hintonburg Festival season off to a bright start.

Mid Day Fun.

Artspark returned for its 14th year in Parkdale Park on Ottawa Race Weekend 2017. A smaller affair than years past it was a hit with the kids. The day began as it has in recent years with Street of Rock performing for the local crowd. The music continued on the Parkdale Park stage for the remainder of the 4 hour festival. Food vendors were again in front of the field-house, and the Parkdale Market was busy providing fresh potted flowers, and herbs in pots for the gardens waking up from a cool spring.
