It has been a rainy week in the Nation’s Capital, but the wet soggy and chilly climate could not deter various events happening on the weekend. I had the opportunity to attend the Ottawa Mini Maker Faire, which was held at the Canada Science and Technology Museum. The family-friendly event which in its 4th year is a festival of creativity and showing inventions coming from a DIY aspect. A lot of exhibitors ranged from gadgets to a lot of demonstrations from robotics and products using 3D printing, just to name a few. There were workshops and panel during the event.
Over 600 plus came out to the event for Saturday, quite surprising as the festival brings out the fun technology in all ages.

The other museum to go on Saturday night was at the Canadian Museum of Nature. It was a lion dance performance for a wedding reception. Prior to performing, I brought along the Polaroid Spectra Camera to try shooting the double exposure effect. I posted two photos onto my Facebook page and I will post them here. The lion dance performance was great as usual and the newlyweds probably enjoyed the colourful lions dancing around them for good luck and prosperity.

Overall, it was a great weekend in Ottawa. Another event is happening and that’s the Arboretum Music Festival. It’s in their 3rd year running and they got an excellent lineup from the Constantines, Kevin Drew, Hilotrons and a bunch of others. There’s definitely lots of do in Ottawa as Summer is not quite over yet.
