Holiday hangover?

Can’t wait until the kids go back to school? Can’t find anything to do with them to get them off the couch and away from Fortnite?

This weekend in the Glebe is full of family-friendly activities to get your family moving, with everything from free public skating and two Ottawa 67’s hockey games, to free jazz and the Ottawa Farmers’ Market.

Your weekend kicks off early Thursday afternoon at The Arena at TD Place, where the rink is open to the public from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. for a FREE public skate. Slice away the final few days of the holidays by strapping on the blades and skating around the same ice as the Ottawa 67’s. Click here for more information.

On Saturday, The Ottawa 67’s look to carry their OHL dominance into the New Year when they take on the Barrie Colts at the Arena at TD Place. The 67’s sit in first overall in the OHL and with superstar goaltender Mikey DiPietro returning from his world junior stint, the 67’s look to stay hot as the league’s playoff push begins. The 67’s take on the Colts at 2 p.m. Saturday at TD Place. Click here for tickets.

The 67’s won’t get much rest this weekend, as they are back at it on Sunday afternoon when the Oshawa Generals blow into town at 2 p.m. Sunday’s game kicks off at 2 p.m. at the Arena at TD Place. Click here for tickets to that game.

On Sunday, the Ottawa Farmers’ Winter Market returns to its normal schedule with the market taking over the Aberdeen Pavilion every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Browse local produce, grains and artisan goods from local vendors. Click here for more information.

Sunday is also jazz night in the Glebe with both Industria and The Arrow and Loon hosting free jazz nights. Bob to a rotating roster of local jazz cats at Industria from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. every Sunday, or head over to the Arrow and Loon for their monthly jazz night from 6-8 p.m. for vocal jazz backed by the Glebop Trio.

It’s a great first weekend of 2019 – and a sign of even more things to come to the Glebe all year long. Happy weekend!
