Best of #ODBF pt.1

Tuesday, August 09, 2016

#ODBF is our official hashtag for the Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival, and we just want to say a huge shout-out to those who used it over the festival weekend. Here are some of the best pictures we found on Instagram using the hashtag!

July Talk put on an amazing, insanely high-energy performance, drawing the largest crowd ODBF has ever seen! Leah Fay was all over the stage and took command of the audience. Dina Macleod managed to capture this moment of her and the mic stand. I can only presume she is challenging someone to an impromptu jousting match.

The Living Roots Dragon Boat Team celebrate winning their award just the way we like it. This was just a piece of the celebration we had at the end of the races. Lots of drinks, dancing and music, with all the teams gathered together to celebrate the weekend. 270.jpg


A perfect moment captured at the July Talk performance.

Alvvays headlined the stage on Saturday night, bringing their signature sound down to Mooney’s Bay. Even with their more subdued sound they still drew a huge crowd to the hill!

While it is a dragon boat festival, sometimes other large-scale reptiles invade to try and claim their territory. Russell T. Wrecks stomped around the festival. Yes, we learned nothing from Jurassic Park. Our arrogance will be our downfall.
