Music in the Park back on

The Ottawa City Council is bringing back Music in the Park at Washington Park in the downtown area.

It had been canceled in May because of the coronavirus pandemic. Mayor Dan Aussem says people wanted it back – so the city looked into it.

Aussem says the city council placed a contract on file Tuesday for a band to play on Saturday, July 11 and will vote to approve it at next week’s city council meeting.

If things go well and people follow the guidelines, Aussem says he’ll look into scheduling more events.

The band scheduled to play is the classic rock band the Classix.
