Thanksgiving Weekend – Around Town


Fall Rhapsody- Gatineau Park


A must-see for the whole family.


Saunders Farm

Visit a Pumpkin Patch

It’s not to early to get pick out the perfect pumpkin for this year’s spectacular Jack-0-Lantern.  There are many pumpkin patches and stands around the region.  Nothing could be more perfect on a crisp Thanksgiving weekend.


Carleton University Butterfly Exhibit


The Ottawa Butterfly Show is an annual event that runs daily from Saturday,October 5, 2013, to Monday, October 14, 2013, in the greenhouses of Carleton University’s biology department.

Some butterflies love to land on colourful clothing or you could just put your hand underneath and they would climb on. So bring your kids or your camera or both and enjoy this exhibit! But hurry, it’s only on as long as the butterflies’ lifespan!



Come and stroll through a hauntingly beautiful and spellbinding outdoor exhibit of now close to 6,000 hand-carved pumpkins, set against a stirring night-time backdrop just inside the gates of historic Upper Canada Village. Marvel at this eclectic display of scenes from exotic places and historic ages, meet up with forest animals and sea-born creatures, see story book heroes, mythical characters, cultural icons and more …. all carved from pumpkins!
