One of the best things about social media is that there are so many fun ways to celebrate different occasions and that festive spirit definitely extends to apps. If you're lucky enough to celebrate Canada Day here in Canada's capital city of Ottawa, these 4 apps will help guide you on your way to an amazing patriotic celebration.
Canada Day in the Capital - This is an amazingly comprehensive list of activities and events for Canada Day and it integrates really well with social media. You can get information and maps for all the different special events around the city, learn more about the great bands performing at various venues, and even share your photos and experiences via social media
How Canadian Are You - This app is tons of fun! It's a series of quizzes to test your knowledge of all things Canadian. Some questions are real head scratchers, while a few are silly and will make you chuckle. This app comes from Citizenship and Immigration Canada - who says the government doesn't have a sense of humor?
OC Transpo - This app is perfect for navigating the downtown congestion and figuring out how to get to events around the city.
Ottawa Street Food - Food and celebrating go hand in hand! This app is great for finding all the good street food on Canada Day - and throughout the year as well.
