Only a few days to wait before Red Arrows visit to Gatineau-Ottawa! If you don’t have your tickets yet, buy them here and avoid the line ups. If you already have them, here are a few hints to prepare for your visit:
At the gate, you will need to have a copy of your tickets printed or downloaded to your mobile device. For 4-day pass holders, your tickets will be scanned once for the Red Arrows show, then a second time when you return in September. Thus, you will have to keep or reprint your ticket for September.
