Changing of the Guard

Changing-the-Guard

Whether you are new to Ottawa or a familiar face who hasn’t had the opportunity to watch yet, one exciting tradition in the City is the Changing of the Guard ceremony.

 

The Changing of the Guard is a daily ceremony over the summer which includes a regimental band and pipers as they gather on Parliament Hill for drills. This event begins at 10:00 AM every day until August 25.

 

I highly encourage all residents who may be downtown for the day to take a moment to witness a proud part of our Canadian history.
