Ottawa Morning (5:30 to 8:30 a.m.), Ontario Today (12 to 1 p.m.), All In A Day (3 to 6 p.m.) and CBC Ottawa News at 6 (to 7 p.m.) will be live at the National Arts Centre on 1 Elgin St. with special guests, live musical performances and giveaways.
We're also hosting a free concert from noon to 1 p.m. with Django Libre at the NAC's Glass Thorsteinson Staircase.
