Ottawa festivals are always a recipe for fun.. with the weather taking a turn for the best it’s a perfect time to explore all the special events happening across the city. Personally, I love glow in the dark things!! Why? I am not too sure but it certainly makes things more interesting. So naturally, combining a festival and glow in the dark activities is nothing short from a brilliant idea.

Is it worth a visit?

GlowFair was a pretty fun event but I will admit that after an hour or so, I was ready to go. Now, while there I found some things pretty cool..


Artists painting murals


Aerial performers


A fun Glowing Enchanted Forest 🌳


And my personal favourite, a Squish Candy Kiosk 😍


All in all, I would recommend arriving later, around 9pm, at this event if you plan on watching the DJ performances and to capture everything in the dark. I left before then but think the nightlife is really what makes this event special!
