Travellers like to utilise different options when they plan out their holidays. Some enjoy staying in lavish hotels, while others like to backpack from hostel to hostel. However, several tourists simply enjoy relaxing at a homey cottage and admiring the natural wonders of their new locale. If individuals have ever considered buying a cabin of their own or simply wish to spruce up their next rental, they could head to the Cottage Show at the CE Centre in Canada's capital city this April.
Attendees can spend the whole day learning all there is to know about holiday rentals. The all-day festivities take place on April 13, 14 and 15, and will be packed with activities, presentations, classes and more. They may first head to the "Chair-ity auction", which will feature chairs created by local artisans. Then guests can enter their names in one of the giveaways that offer items like kayaks, juicers, Bluetooth devices and picnic supplies.
Event officials have put a focus on conservation that will be highlighted throughout the show. The Cottage Wildlife section aims to educate those at the convention about the importance of protecting the environment by purchasing green equipment for cottages and not damaging natural habitats. Travellers may participate in a variety of different seminars and workshops depending on where and when they would like to holiday. At the event, guest may educate themselves on bear safety, protecting the country's coastlines or taking care of Ontario's endangered species.
Not only will the Cottage Show be happening in Ottawa this spring, but The Big Backyard Show will also be taking place at the venue during the same weekend. This conference focuses on outdoor enthusiasts as well, with dozens of vendors presenting information and the latest products in landscaping and home improvement. Some of the vendors at this exhibition will include boating companies, surfing businesses and outdoor culinary experts.
Tickets and more information can be found at the CE Centre's or the Can1east Shows' website. Travellers may attend both events with one entrance fee, and guests that are 17 and under may go free of charge. Checking out some of these major gatherings that are happening in the city can be a wonderful addition to a visitor's itinerary for tours of Ottawa.
