Cow­boys In Ottawa!

Sum­mer is def­i­nitely here: hot and humid weather, checked. Peo­ple on hol­i­days? Checked. Canada Day and a bunch of cool fes­ti­vals com­ing up? Checked. Out­door BBQs? Checked.

North Amer­i­cans love BBQ. Well, the tra­di­tion is best hon­ored in South­ern US, but Cana­di­ans like it too. And every year, the Sparks Street BBQ con­test attracts a lot of peo­ple. Eleven teams from across Canada and the USA “com­pete” for the best ribs and the best chicken pieces. It is a lot of meat — basi­cally, a veg­e­tar­ian nightmare.

Sparks Street is right behind Par­lia­ment Hill and sur­rounded by gov­ern­ment build­ings, so for a lot of peo­ple, the event is the chance to pick up some­thing a bit dif­fer­ent for lunch. You wouldn’t believe the line­ups! Well, I guess the smell of cooked meat makes it hard to resist…
