Happy Canada Day from the Glebe

June 30, 2017 | by glebeadmin

If you take a quick stroll down Bank Street, it won’t take you long to realize how passionately patriotic business are in the Glebe.

You’ll pass by scores of storefronts decorated in red and white, with Canada flags, Ottawa 2017 swag and Canada 150 pageantry hanging from store windows, flower baskets and even in-store displays.

You’ll find mini Canada flags littered throughout the community and beautiful pageantry tying it all together on the street.

On behalf of all of the businesses in the Glebe, we would like wish you all a happy Canada Day, and thank all of our loyal customers, visitors and tourists for making the Glebe a top-of-mind destination.

We would also like to extend a huge thank you to the crew at Ottawa 2017 and Canada 150, who deserve an immense amount of credit for tirelessly working towards putting on the country’s biggest show and we can’t wait to see it all culminate tomorrow for Canada Day.

While there are no specific Canada Day activities planned in the Glebe, restaurants and several shops will be open all day. Check out our member directory here.

We would also like to extend a huge thank you to all our Glebe businesses for championing the area, the city, and the country during our nation’s biggest year. We are so proud to see you embracing the spirit of Canada all year long.

But the party doesn’t stop after July 1. The celebration continues all year long, with several major events including more than 25 more Ottawa Welcomes the World Events, The Grey Cup championship and the NHL 100 Classic outdoor game, just to name a few.

Here’s to another six months of patriotic pride. Go, Canada, Go!
