Canadian Tulip Festival 2019 – S14E06

It’s the Victoria Day long weekend and Saturday at Canadian Tulip Festival had event for Beijing-Ottawa Day at Commissioner’s Park in Ottawa.

It was a special occasion because it marked the 20th anniversary in the relationship with Beijing and Ottawa for bringing the Tulip Friendship garden to both cities.

There was a lion dance performance to mark the event and celebrating the friendship and tulips.

Prior to the lion dance performance, I had the opportunity to check out the tulips throughout Dow’s Lake. Due to the slow start to Spring, a bunch of tulips have slowly been growing. There were some colourful tulips which I was able to shoot some photos.

At The Canada Science and Technology Museum, Leonardo da Vinci – 500 Years of Genius – S14E05

At the Canada Science and Technology Museum, I had the opportunity to attend the unveiling of their temporary exhibit, Leonardo da Vinci – 500 Years of Genius.

This year marks da Vinci’s 500th birthday. The exhibit showcases the inventions and paintings from this amazing figure. The real Mona Lisa isn’t there but there are various re-productions and different variations of the smiling painting.

Some of da Vinci’s inventions displayed at the museum have interactive elements for children and family to try things out.
