Paddling on the Ottawa River – panoramic photo

Considered by many as one of the best places for kayaking, the Ottawa River have been hosting different international competitions, e.g., the 2007 World Kayak Championship.

None of this took place here on Bate Island at Canada’s capital, but down the river on its way to Quebec, near the Pontiac region. Yet, this is a great place for learning and training!

Canadian Tulip Festival in Ottawa

The Canadian Tulip Festival claims to be the world’s largest tulip festival, with attendance of over 500,000 visitors annually. This major cultural event is held annually in Ottawa and Gatineau, Canada, generally on three weekends in May, concluding with the Victoria Day long weekend.

Although tulips are displayed throughout the city, the most extensive tulip beds are to found in Commissioners Park on the shores of Dow’s Lake, on the Rideau Canal with 300,000 tulips planted there alone.

In 1945, the Dutch royal family sent 100,000 tulip bulbs to Ottawa in gratitude for Canadians having sheltered Princess Juliana and her daughters for the preceding three years during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, in the Second World War. (Source: Wikipedia)
