A wildly popular addition to this year's festival were the larger than life aluminum letters on the courthouse lawn, across from the festival grounds.
Spelling out #OttawaIL, the official hashtag for the city of Ottawa, this attraction saw droves of curious spectators stopping to snag a photo for their social media accounts.
"This is really cool. We've been to a few wine festivals, but I've never seen one with a sign like this, I mean...this is huge. We've got some good pictures for Instagram now," Brandon Fritz, of Rockford, said with a laugh.
This temporary installation, provided courtesy of the Ottawa Visitors Center, will run for the remainder of Wine Fest. If you're in the area, be sure to drop by and get a photo or two.
