Things to do in Ottawa this Halloween!

As you know, October 31st, or All Hallows’ Eve, is a yearly celebration of the dead!  We are less than a week away from this festive day.  Will you be trick or treating this year with your kids?  Carving pumpkins?  Going to any Halloween parties?  Whatever you do, take advantage and dress up as whatever you want!  Want to be a cute bumblebee, a half eaten zombie, or a sultry sailor, the choice is yours!

Here are a few of the things I will be doing between now and October 31st!
