Just because the heat wave is over doesn't mean you need to turn on hibernation mode. We found a bunch of sensational things to do in Ottawa this weekend.

The holiday magic returns, as The Magic Of Lights is back. Instead of freezing outside, you can drive-thru in your car to see the jaw-dropping tunnel of lights and festive displays.

Meanwhile, if you have a sweet tooth, you'll want to check out Rideau, Bayshore or St. Laurent shopping centre. There are brand new vending machines that will give you give you a slice of cake with the push of a button.
