Twice as many Ottawa businesses will be participating in downtown Ottawa's third annual Wine and Art Walk from 2 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4.
This year there will be more than two dozen businesses, versus a dozen last year.
All participants will start out at the Ottawa Boat Club, 500 Columbus St., where they will receive their wine glass, wrist band and a “passport” map of participating businesses.
There will be samples of wine, appetizers and art at each participating business along the Wine and Art Walk — as well as a chance to win one of 20 prizes.
“A lot of the merchants will be really going out of their way to make it fun and interesting,” said Rich Crum, general manager of The Lone Buffalo restaurant.
The Computer Spa will be remade for the event in the style of a jazz nightclub, he said.
Also, music will be performed by Crash from 4 to 8 p.m. outside Jeremiah Joe Coffee. Reddick Mansion will be open for tours.
