Ottawa Chess-in-the-street 2009

Chess-in-the-Street is an outdoor chess event that takes the game of chess from the parlour to the street. Chess-in-the-Street will have numerous activities appealing to everyone: from kids to adults and from those who have never played before to the seasoned tournament player. With each game you play, your name will be entered in a draw for prizes. Chess-in-the-Street will also have GIANTCHESS!, a giant-sized chess board on the street. There will be a Simultaneous Chess Competition in the afternoon each day, featuring a Chessmaster who will battle 15 simultaneous chess opponents.

Chess-in-the-Street is an outdoor chess event, and will be held as part of Ottawa's biggest street festival WESTFEST, on Saturday and Sunday, June 13th and 14th, 2009.

Wow, I've never heard of such a big outdoor chess event. Is Ottawa a big chess city in general?

I hope it will become one!

There are 7-8 good tournaments every year.
Are you good at chess?
