Murder at the ROM

Saturday August 2nd at 1:00-3:30 pm

A curator has been murdered and a trail of clues left behind, connected to secrets in the collections. As you solve clues, you’ll begin to piece together a tale of greed, lust, pride and revenge. There are multiple suspects, one victim and you, the sleuths, must crack a cryptic code left in the curator’s appointment book to solve the mystery.

On an Urban Capers Scavenger Hunt, you don’t collect items, but rather answers to tricky and humourous questions. This event is not associated with the ROM. Tickets must be purchased in advance at www.urbancapers.com/murder-at-the-royal-ontario-museum/.

OVO Fest 2014

OVO Fest. August 3rd will feature those inimitable hipsters Outkast with their brand
of infectious music. Andre 3000 and Big Boi are masters of commanding an audience with their catchy tunes.
Their outstanding hit “Hey Ya!” ushered them onto the scene with verve. Their music blends funk, soul, R’n B, electronic music and jazz. It’s great to see these two back on stage.

August 4th will feature none other than Toronto “home boy” Drake. His smooth, endearing voice has captured listeners from the moment he dawned on the seen. Since his debut disc Thank Me Later, he has not disappointed music lovers. It reached Number One Billboard during its first week of release. Currently, his massive track “Hold On, We’re Going Home” proves he’s got talent to burn! When Drake’s on home turf, nothing can stop him. He will hit it out of the park!
