Fury FC game, Tulip Festival, fireworks all in the Glebe this week

May 18, 2016 | by glebeadmin

The Ottawa Fury FC could book its ticket to the second round of the Amway Canadian Championship tonight, even if they lose to FC Edmonton.

The trick is to not let Edmonton win by 3 or more, as the Fury took a stranglehold on the Eddies last week with a 3-0 win in Edmonton.

A win, tie or even a loss by 2 or less would push the Fury into the second round of the tournament to face the Vancouver Whitecaps of Major League Soccer (MLS).

Defeating The Vancouver Whitecaps will be a tall order for the lower-division Fury, but after dominating Edmonton last week, Ottawa seems like the top contender to pull off an upset in the championship.

It all goes down tonight at TD Place at 7:30 p.m. Click here for tickets.

If you’re not the biggest footy fan, there is still plenty of stuff happening in the entire Glebe this week and weekend – and the list of activities is nothing to sniff at.

Tulip Festival continues this week in the Glebe with exhibits, workshops and an epic Victoria Day Fireworks show Sunday night.

Spend the day touring the indoor tulip garden at the Aberdeen Pavilion or check out the old WWII demos on the Great Lawn all week.

Kids will be dazzled Friday afternoon when Baldini the Magician pulls out all his tricks and illusions at the Aberdeen Pavilion. The free event runs from 2 to 3 p.m. and will have your little ones – and even you – scratching your head.

Friday also boasts a Tulip Potato Painting event by Whole Foods in the Aberdeen Pavilion. Turn Mr. Potato Head into a budding beautiful tulip. There is also daily music at the Aberdeen Pavilion stage, workshops and courses for painting, photography and other disciplines. Click here for more on Tulip Fest. 

Sunday night will get loud and bright when the Electric Tulip fireworks show shoots off over the Glebe from TD Place Stadium. The fireworks are schedule to fire off around dusk, approximately around 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for kids. Get them here.
