Show Info: Duelling knights, dastardly pirates, proper princesses, an ancient goddess and not one but two shipwrecks! How could the Fools have waited so long to tell the thrilling tale of Pericles, Prince of Tyre! When our hero discovers a dark secret about the evil king of Antioch, Pericles is forced to flee for his life. So begins an epic voyage that takes him across several seas to far off lands where he discovers adventure, love, and just maybe what life is all about. Don’t miss this exciting, fast paced escapade set in a mythical world and played against the backdrop of Fisher Heights Park.

Last year the Fools played to a packed crowd despite the threat of rain. As the clouds loomed, the show was moved inside the community building and performed to great laughter and cheers. You won’t want to miss the show. It’s fun for the entire family!

Hot Day at 2016 Bike Rodeo

Scortching temperatures baked our Nation’s Capital two weekends ago, but it didn’t keep bike lovers from coming out to participate in this year’s edition of the FHACA Bike Rodeo held on Saturday, May 28.

From 1PM – 3PM young and old alike gathered at Fisher Heights Park to participate in cycling obstacle courses, learn about road rules, decorate their bikes and get their bikes tuned up for free!

A special thanks goes out to all of the volunteers who helped make the day a success,   especially considering the hot temperatures – Cycle Salvation for providing free tune-ups, the City’s Safer Roads Ottawa program for providing free bike lights, reflector strips and teaching road rules, and Dimitri Moisseev & Diana Bivolan for taking photos of the day. Below is a visual recap of the day.
