Ice Cream + Gelato in Ottawa

Summer is around the corner in Ottawa.
We need something to cool off.
Why not with Ice Cream and Gelato?
Yes, there are the big ones like Dairy Queen, Baskin Robins, Laura Secord and etc.
I find the big places are safe with flavours and if they have Vegan options too.
So I asked people online which was mostly from Facebook.
Here are the responses I got for Ice Cream and Gelato places you should support locally.
If you like to add others, please comment on the bottom.
Moo Shu Ice Cream on 477 Bank St had the most responses.
Their mainstay flavours are Hong Kong Milk Tea (Haven’t had it but can actually taste it), Black Sesame (I know what it will taste like), Ginger Vanilla Bean, Lime Leaf + Fresh, Mint (Apr – Nov), Local Strawberry (Really good) and Vegan Chocolate.
They also have rotating flavours which you can check on their site.

Stella Luna on 1103 Bank Street and 1130 Wellington Street West had the most responses for Gelato.

They don’t use any nuts or peanuts and make their scooped ice cream in small batches with a constantly rotating selection of new flavours.

Kontinuum

As part of Ottawa 2017, I checked out Kontinuum.
Here are the details from the site:
This immersive multimedia production, created by Ottawa 2017 and Moment Factory, unfolds in Ottawa’s future Lyon Light Rail Transit (LRT) station. Visitors descend deep underground into an anomaly in the fabric of reality where invisible frequencies take on physical dimension.

Kontinuum runs until September 14th and tickets are free through the site.

Day 1 of Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival [June 23, 2016]

While my site Photogmusic is down, I may have to use this as a back up for now.
It was the first night of the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival 2016.
While there was no competition for the Dragon Boat teams.
But the festival treated the city of Ottawa to four nights of free concerts.
The first night had July Talk, The Balconies, The Muscadettes, The Lionyls and Modern Space.

Headlining the first night of the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival 2016 was Toronto’s July Talk. They were truly brilliant and wild with their alterna-rock music.
