Canada's Capital City Planning Yearlong Celebration of Country's 150th Birthday

Canada is celebrating its 150th birthday next year, and the country's capital city is going all out. 

A yearlong event dubbed Ottawa 2017 will feature a slew of concerts, museum exhibits, sports tournaments, and fireworks shows—including a showstopping display on Canada Day, July 1. 

The city's Canadian Museum of History and the National Gallery of Canada are both getting upgrades for the occasion, and throughout the year, 17 "epic stunts and gatherings" will be staged designed to highlight unconventional spaces. Among the ones already announced: a sunset yoga session held on a barge floating down a local waterway and accompanied by a live orchestra.


For more information on all the stuff that's planned, check out the Ottawa 2017 website.
