Mayor’s 12th Annual Christmas Celebration
Join Mayor Jim Watson for the Mayor’s 12th Annual Christmas Celebration on Saturday, Dec. 8 from 3 to 7 p.m. at its new location – Ottawa City Hall. There will be fun-filled activities for the whole family to enjoy both inside City Hall and outdoors on Marion Dewar Plaza, so dress appropriately. Enjoy skating on the Rink of Dreams, hot chocolate, horse-drawn wagon rides and roast marshmallows outside on Marion Dewar Plaza. Inside City Hall meet Santa and Mrs. Claus, create a craft in Santa’s workshop, have your face painted, and enjoy live performances. As a special treat, savour chocolate by Lindt. OC Transpo will offer free bus rides on all routes to and from City Hall from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m. to children 11 years and under when accompanied by a fare-paying adult. To help those in need and to share in the spirit of the holiday season, admission to this sponsored event is a non-perishable food donation to the Ottawa Food Bank.
