Downtown Ottawa will be taken over by a 12 metre mechanical spider and a 13 metre mechanical dragon-horse all weekend. La Machine has arrived! These two large mechanical wonders from France are taking over the downtown part of the Nation’s Capital through Sunday.
On Thursday, people got their first glimpses of Kumo (the spider) and Long-Ma (the dragon-horse). Curious onlookers got to see the awakening of Kuno on Thursday night, before they take over the downtown core all weekend. Check out pictures and video below.
If you are planning to check it out, take note that several downtown Ottawa streets are closed for the event, so plan accordingly. Have fun!
