There are three certainties in life…



Social media.

Whether it’s concerts, store openings, foodie reviews, feelgood stories, fun facts about Barrie, even bizarre bird formations over the marina, we want to share it.

Here’s what went down in Barrie last week…


You’ve heard the term “sing for your supper”? Well, over at @bohemiabarrie, occasionally you’ll be asked to sing for your java! Although in this case the patron IS an actual singer, so it’s not that much of an ask…



Speaking of singing, Barrie’s premiere music festival returns in September, and on Tuesday they had a rather large announcement about the stellar lineup for this year!

Did you know there is a national Ultimate Frisbee competition? Nah, neither did we. So we bet you also didn’t know that one of our local athletes is a medal winner from this year’s (and previous) event!

It was graduation day this week for thousands of students across the country, including right here in Barrie at Georgian College. Congrats to @lisacov, @ellie.may101, @future_shrmaynes_problem and all the other grads who got to toss their caps this week!


And finally, summer arrived on Friday. And with it, the long days and sunrises that seem to go on forever…like this one captured by @crystalballs6
