:?I@J C8:BE<I# <[`kfi Kn`kk\i Xe[ @ejkX^iXd 7n_\i\fkkXnX =XZ\Yffb%Zfd&n_\i\fkkXnX School may be out for sum­mer, but that’s no rea­son not to know your ABCs.

Our fea­ture e ABCs of Sum­mer Fes­ti­vals (p. 14) tunes you up for the five big­gest fes­ti­vals, high­light­ing Grade A per­for­mances and tips. Mean­while, an A-Z Guide (p. 17) spells out the city’s top at­trac­tions.

’Tis the sea­son for BBQ. Given back­yard grills don’t travel well, our BBQ and burger guide (p. 35) serves up the best lo­cal fare – grilled and smoked. Look­ing for less siz­zle? ere are plenty of ways to keep cool. Sur­pris­ingly, Ottawa-Gatineau is a beach town, so take a dip (p. 50). For more than a swim, get wet and wild on gi­ant wa­ter slides (p. 49) or the Ottawa River’s white­wa­ter rapids.

Shop­ping for some­thing out of this world? Try Fluevog’s spacey shoe de­signs, or the Royal Cana­dian Mint’s Star Trek coins (p. 26). Speak­ing of Cap­tain Kirk, beam up to the En­ter­prise at e Starfleet Academy Ex­pe­ri­ence (p. 54). For more earthly bat­tles, Napoleon con­quers the Cana­dian His­tory Mu­seum (p. 49) while Deadly Skies — Air War (p. 62) drops at the Cana­dian War Mu­seum.

e sunny sea­son is short. So light it up with North­ern Lights at Par­lia­ment (p. 50) or the Lu­miere Fes­ti­val (p. 11), and fol­low us at @whereot­tawa for more top grade en­ter­tain­ment sug­ges­tions.
