Update: See tons of pictures of the 2012 Ottawa Plaid Parade here.
From Ottawa Velo Vogue:
"What better way to celebrate fall than with a parade? Victoire Boutique, Tall Tree Cycles, Kichesippi Beer and Ottawa Velo Vogue have joined forces to put together an event that combines the best of what fall has to offer: a chance to show off your finest (and coziest) plaid clothing, a scenic group bike ride and a chance to meet other locals who love what you love.
On Saturday November 3rd, 2012, all are invited to meet at Suzy Q Donuts (991 West Wellington Street) at 11 a.m. ready to form a bike parade headed down along the canal towards the Arboretum. This is the perfect event to celebrate the beauty of fall with your family, dogs, friends and favourite local businesses! Come one, come all!!
Under the umbrella of Support Local Month, Victoire Boutique, Tall Tree Cycles, Kichesippi beer and Ottawa Velo Vogue wanted to collaborate on an event that would complement each of their businesses and invite their customers for an exciting opportunity to form the first ever Plaid Parade here in Ottawa. Sartorially-themed bike parade events have brought out many bike enthusiasts and fashion lovers in other cities and Ottawa's first is sure to strike a cord here as well. We are so excited to welcome all out on this community bike ride that will make for lots of fun, fresh air and, of course, beautiful pictures!
After the Plaid Parade, there are other great bike-related events happening around Wellington Village: a bike themed art exhibit at Five Cent (430 Parkdale Ave), an open house at Tall Tree Cycles (255 Richmond Road) and an after party at Kichesippi that will surely delight. Kichessipi will be promoting its latest seasonal brew: a Pennsylvania Porter called LOGGER from 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm at the brewery (866 Campbell Ave). Steve Mitton from Murray Street Charcuterie will be there doing a pig roast, and Mark Snyder from Flatbread Pizza Co. will be bringing his mobile pizza oven and selling artisan pizza by the slice. There will also be music by local bands Hamilton (http://fellowmusic.com/ep/) and Fellow (http://fellowmusic.com/ep), as well as free Brewery tours all day."
