In honor of Canada's 150th birthday, Ottawa will be launching a project called 'Ignite 150,' which will bring 17 surprise stunts and gatherings to the capital city. With everything from yoga classes on a floating barge to rooftop movie projections, the events will help to keep the sesquicentennial celebrations going all year long.

Ignite 150 will consist of "17 epic stunts and gatherings that will turbo-charge every corner of the capital from January to December in 2017." The immersive experiences will be deployed in unique venues that will help Ottawa residents and visitors to the capital experience unexpected spaces in unforgettable ways. While most of the events will remain secret until only a few days before, some planned stunts include yoga sessions on a floating barge, rooftop movie screenings and in-air dining events.
