Welcomeburger to signal start of Ottawa Riverfest

Posted by wlpo on August 2, 2011

Something that many Ottawans circle on their calendar each year starts Wednesday.

Riverfest starts officially at 5pm with the 46th annual “Welcomeburger” at Washington Square Park in downtown Ottawa.  Tickets are $25 per person.  The carnival opens at 6pm.

From Wednesday through Sunday, Riverfest also features live music, sidewalk sales, “Taste of Ottawa”, art show, and horseshoe tournament.  Riverfest ends Sunday with a car show and the annual parade.  Everything except carnival wristbands and food at the “Taste” is free.

99.3 WAJK is sponsoring Sunday night’s music lineup featuring “Crash” and “Hi Infidelity”.
