Irish lass goes to the county fair

Sounds quaint doesn’t it?

Okay, so maybe it’s a little less romantic, but I’ll be heading off to the Ottawa SuperEx today to promote “Irish Day”

During each day of operation, the Ottawa SuperEx typically features a special theme. This year the Irish Society NCR and other local Irish community groups put in a proposal to host an “Irish Day.” The day will be a different mish mash of cultural activities, shows and events. If you’re in the Ottawa area and looking for something fun to do, check it out!

Saturday, August 16th Schedule:

12:00 PM – 12:30 PM
Connemara Ponie = awesome, I looooove ponies!

1:00 PM
Celtic North = stomp your feet and enjoy some tunes

1:40 PM - 2:00 PM & 3:40 PM - 4:00 PM
Irish Dog Show = hooray for puppies!

5:30 PM - 6:15 PM
Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann = learn to speak Irish!

5:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Ottawa Valley Group = good old fashioned valley fun

7:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Suzanne Taylor Irish Dancers = amazing traditional Irish dancers!

7:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Ottawa Fiddle & Step Association = More music and foot stompin’

9:00 PM
Robin Averill = Sing along folks!

But the biggest draw of all folks, is that you’ll be able to see yours truly, the rambling redhead, dancing around like a fool and turning out a few hearty jigs on the Ottawa St. Patrick’s Float on display, or working the adjacent info desk (slightly less exciting). Yup, just another regular Saturday…

Now kindly leave a pleasant comment, turn off your computer, give yourself a break for the day and proceed immediately to the Ex!

If you do visit the Ex today, be sure to come and say hi. I’ll even sign autographs…if I must ; )
