In what has already been called the hottest bear competition Ottawa has ever seen, three incredibly hot bears brought it all to the stage in a stunning evening of song and dance that moved and titillated a packed audience of cheering bears and admirers.

The action packed evening featured performances by the Ottawa Gay Men’s Chorus, Willy Seaman, Roger Fire, the Bear Dance Troop as well as some awesome and sometimes hilarious performances by our talented competitors.

We are hard at work compiling photos and video for you to enjoy but we wanted you to be the first to see our proud new Mr Ottawa Bear, Dori!

If you have photos of the Mr Ottawa Bear weekend that you’d like to share, please contact us.

We would like to extend a truly heartfelt thanks to everyone that helped make this a truly memorable event including MOB committee members and organizers,  sponsors, judges, competitors and volunteers. It is thanks to all of you that the bear community is alive and well in Ottawa!

Here are some of the photos we’ve received so far. Check back often as we add more and let us know if you have some to contribute.
