Ottawa Explosion Weekend!

This crazy party is less than two weeks away! It's going to be completely bananas and we look forward to hanging out with everyone! 

Are we the only festival in existence that uses blogspot? Probably so, my auto-correct just tried to switch it to "bloodspot". 

Check the whole schedule below!
