FESTIVAL SURVIVAL KIT

Tuesday, April 19, 2022

The Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival is always the first festival of the summer in the Nation's Capital, with that in mind let’s take a look at some must have festival items.

Sunscreen

The sun is literally a giant ball of fire, and it will burn you even if it is a few million miles away. Unless you enjoy the feeling of your skin cells spontaneously combusting, apply some sunscreen to keep yourself safe. No one likes looking like a tomato, and we all have that friend that is going to slap your sunburn. Best way to avoid that is to not get burnt in the first place, or stop hanging out with that guy. He’s awful.

Hats

To no ones suprise, it's no coincidence that sunscreen and hats are side by side on the festivals summer survival kit. Protect your melon people!

Sun Glasses

The sun will be shining and it will be a beautiful weekend at Mooney’s Bay Park. But all those rays are going to be bouncing off the water and glaring into your eyes. Be sure to bring protection for them.

Fanny Pack

Do yourself a favour, do as The Rock says, “Know your role and keep everything in a fanny pack, Jabroni!” Also be sure to look for Dwayne’s outfit in the Festival Fashion Report! This may be the only time it is socially acceptable to rock (pun intended) a fanny pack, and you can do it with confidence knowing all your valuables are safe and sound next to your fanny. Just take it off when you’re heading home to avoid being ostracised from regular society.

Phone Charger

From smartphones to speakers, electronics always need topping-up during the Festival. Bring your cell phone portable battery pack/charger with you to keep you connected and to keep your mobile devices charged so that you don’t miss a minute of capturing all the Dragon Boat action.
