During the last weekend of Winterlude, I happened to catch a couple of costumed buskers making their way from Confederation Park over to City Hall, outfitted as dragons.
The Ice Hogs were also over here at the time, leaving City Hall as I passed by.
The Ottawa Public Library has a bookmobile program. Two buses serve in this capacity, sometimes showing up at events like Winterlude, but regularly through the week in various locations as an additional service beyond the thirty or so branches of the OPL. The bus is packed with books and other borrowing material.
Skaters were out on the ice rink before City Hall and Cartier Square.
And there were street musicians out at the entrance to City Hall. The enthusiasm of the dancer, moving to the sound of the drums, caught my attention.
