The end of summer doesn't mean the end of great music festivals in Ottawa

There are lots of reasons to love Ottawa, and one of them is the way the city seems to think, "If it ain't snowing, it's good weather for a music festival." This is why the CityFolk Festival has become such a hit despite the ever-looming possibility of cold rain, or even frost. Ottawa photographer Dan Nawrocki attended the five day festival a couple of weeks ago and sent back these terrific shots.
