The Thanksgiving season has arrived and it is time to start making your holiday plans. For today’s post, the Panoramic Properties blog team has some insider information on what’s happening not far from your Ottawa apartment this Thanksgiving.
Saunders Farm (7893 Bleeks Road) is a popular destination in the greater Ottawa area because of its hayrides, mazes, pumpkins, Halloween events and variety of tasty farm-fresh foods. Experience the bounty of the harvest season over your Thanksgiving weekend by driving a half-hour from Baseline Court (1785-1815 Baseline Road) to this local farm.
Ottawa Butterfly Show
The Ottawa Butterfly Show takes place from Saturday, October 4 until Monday, October 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The spectacular show features nearly fifteen hundred butterflies, representing forty-one different species. This annual event offers free admission. Drive ten minutes from this Panoramic Property community (1785-1815 Baseline Road) to the Nesbitt Biology Building on the Carleton University campus (1125 Colonel By Drive).
Pumpkinferno is a rapidly growing outdoor festival that features nearly six thousand hand-carved pumpkins. The glowing pumpkins are artistically carved in every shape imaginable. To see the display for yourself, enjoy a scenic hour-long holiday drive to neighbouring Upper Canada Village (13740 County Road 2) from Baseline Court. Over the Thanksgiving weekend, attend the festival from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
