The sea­son’s hottest events

Cana­dian Na­tional FireFit Cham­pi­onships Sept. 6-10 Mud races and cross fit take note, noth­ing is quite as in­tense and tough as fight­ing fire. Come cheer on in­di­vid­u­als and fire de­part­ment teams who have made their pro­fes­sion a sport. Canada Avi­a­tion and Space Mu­seum, 11 Avi­a­tion Pkwy., firefit.com Hot Wheels – Race to Win Ex­hi­bi­tion Sept. 9-Jan. 7, 2018 Quite pos­si­bly the most pop­u­lar car toys of all time, HOT WHEELS are great to un­der­stand how real ve­hi­cles are de­signed and made light­ning-fast. Co­pro­duced by The Chil­dren’s Mu­seum of In­di­anapo­lis and toy maker Mat­tel, this fire-hot ex­hi­bi­tion will be rolling into the Cana­dian Mu­seum of His­tory for four months for car-lovers of all ages to ex­per­i­ment and play. Cana­dian Mu­seum of His­tory, 100 Lau­rier St., Gatineau, his­to­ry­mu­seum.ca Mac My Cheese Fes­ti­val Sept. 29-Oct. 1 It’s up there with PB and jam: mac­a­roni and cheese is a win­ning com­bi­na­tion. This fes­ti­val boasts oo­dles of tra­di­tional plates, but fol­low your nose for the gourmet and even ex­otic ver­sions of the com­fort food.

The three-day fest in­cludes live mu­sic, judges and a best dish com­pe­ti­tion—and more mac and cheese than you can stuff your face with. Fes­ti­val Plaza, Ot­tawa City Hall, 110 Lau­rier Ave. W., macmy­cheese­fest.ca

Ot­tawa Fall Colours Run Oct. 8 You can’t beat run­ning through the fin­ish line at the Cum­ber­land Her­itage Vil­lage Mu­seum with such a beau­ti­ful au­tumn back­drop. With runs rang­ing from the 42 km to the Wylie Ryan 1 km Turkey Trot, the an­nual Fall Colours Run is the best way to ap­pre­ci­ate the change of the sea­son—and get in one last run be­fore win­ter. Cum­ber­land Her­itage Vil­lage Mu­seum, 2940 Old Mon­treal Rd., som­er­sault.ca Cana­dian Bi­en­nial Oct. 19-March 18, 2018 Though still rel­a­tively young— es­pe­cially com­pared to the 122-year-old Venice Bi­en­nale— this fourth edi­tion of the Cana­dian Bi­en­nial is a col­lec­tion un­like any other. In­stal­la­tions, paint­ings, sculp­tures, pho­tos, and video col­lected by the Na­tional Gallery will high­light the work of Cana­di­ans work­ing here and abroad, hit­ting on com­mon themes of mi­gra­tion, na­tion­hood, and imag­i­na­tion. Na­tional Gallery of Canada, 380 Sus­sex Dr., gallery.ca

Pump­kin­ferno Sept 29-Oct. 29 Boys and girls of every age, wouldn’t you like to see some­thing strange? The an­nual jack-o’-lantern dis­play at Up­per Canada Vil­lage fea­tures a team of carvers who cre­ate life-like moulds of glow­ing pump­kins and will in­cor­po­rate themes of Canada’s sesqui­cen­ten­nial into their spooky dis­play. Up­per Canada Vil­lage,

13740 County Rd. 2, Mor­ris­burg, up­per­cana­davil­lage.com The Mag­nif­i­cence of Chaudière Falls Late Septem­ber early Novem­ber Every evening, rain or stars, ar­chi­tec­tural light­ing and a dy­namic sound­track will add am­bi­ence and sig­nif­i­cance to the Al­go­nquin her­itage of the falls be­tween Ot­tawa and Hull. The free in­stal­la­tion in­cludes a 10-minute loop of mu­sic and vi­su­als de­vel­oped in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the lo­cal Pik­wàkanà­gan na­tion to cel­e­brate their cul­ture and his­tory in the re­gion.
