Upcoming Events You Don’t Want To Miss

January 15th, 2015

The winter doldrums don’t have to get you down. There are so many fun upcoming events happening in Ottawa and the nearby communities that you’ll want to schedule your next trip to your second home at Heritage Harbor Ottawa right away. So be sure to update your 2015 calendar and schedule your weekend visits now:

First off, make sure if you are interested in boating to attend the Chicago Boat, RV & Strictly Sail Show in Chicago January 14-18 at McCormick Place, South Hall Booth: P1830! You can get more information about the event here: http://www.chicagoboatshow.com/

Nothing’s Sweeter than a Child – April 19 – Celebrations 150: 740 E. U.S. Highway 6, Utica – Who can say “no” to a chocolate festival? Be sure to put this weekend on your calendar, because last year it drew a full crowd. Sample some of Illinois’ finest chocolate confections, enjoy music by Steve Sharp and participate in raffles.

Midwest Morel Fest – May 3 – When it’s morel season, the woods are crawling with hunters looking for these elusive, delicious mushrooms. Ottawa embraces the season with a festival at Jordan Block Park where you can learn everything there is to know about morels. Participate in a hunt for a cash prize, shop the morel farmers market and pick up some new morel lingo.

Starved Rock Country Marathon – May 6 – Both the marathon and half-marathon start in downtown Ottawa. The marathon route runs along both sides of the Illinois River and cuts through both Buffalo Rock and Starved Rock state parks for some beautiful scenery to keep runners going strong.

Ottawa 2 Rivers Wine Festival – June 7 – If the morels and chocolate leave you a little parched, this festival is a must-see. Wine samples are paired with food and music for a great afternoon. It’s in the same location as the Morel Fest in Jordan Block Park. The party will happen rain or shine, so be sure to plan ahead.

With a second home right in Ottawa, you’ll have no problem scheduling your visits and getting a front-row seat to all these events.
