August 2, 2018 | by glebeadmin



Dance, sing, run, kick, cheer.

These are all the things you’ll be able to do in the Glebe this weekend.

Starting Thursday night, you weekend gets an early lift off with everything from concerts and soccer matches to a festival that celebrates all things Thailand.

It all kicks off Thursday night when The Utah-based Piano Guys take over the Arena at TD Place for a night of pop music with a classical twist. The Piano Guys, which is comprised of classically-trained musicians, Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson, Paul Anderson and Al van der Beek, will be playing through their catalogue of wildly popular hits like the Jurassic Park Theme, One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” and the hit song, “Let it Go,” from Disney’s Frozen. The show starts at 7 p.m. with tickets starting at $45. Click here to snag a seat.

Ottawa Fury FC could be in playoff position after this weekend. The squad is currently just one point out of the final USL playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, and a win over the Tampa Bay Rowdies this weekend could catapult them into contention. The Rowdies will be looking to move up the standings themselves, as they are just a point behind the Fury, making Friday’s game an important one. Click here for tickets.

Before heading to the Ottawa Farmers’ Market on Sunday, start your morning off with a solid work out, courtesy of Goodlife Fitness.
