Social Recap: The Week That Was in Barrie June 23rd – 30th

All The Good (And Occasional) Bad of What Went Down in Barrie Last Week

There are three certainties in life…



Social media.

And if you are tweeting, posting and talking about Barrie on social media, we want to hear from you! Every week we will do a quick recap of the week that was in Barrie based on your pics, posts and videos.

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…


Oh yeah…it was the Canada Day Long Weekend, which meant Promenade Days took over downtown. And a few of the smaller attendees wanted to join in the fun!


Speaking of joining in, there were thousands lined up to see the annual air show, which rocked the waterfront on Friday and Saturday. Summed perfectly in this snap by @oliveoilcobarrienewmarket


And check out this insanely cool video from INSIDE one of the snowbirds cockpit while flying the show from @equipedemocf18!!

And when the snowbirds finally did come back to earth, they were hanging out under the stars taking in the Barrie Film Festival’s screening of Top Gun (what else would they be watching?) at Meridian Place!

Our friends @shifthappensacro were out and about as well last week, showing off their “stuff” during the street festival and at the Farmer’s Market!


Perhaps you didn’t hear (as in, because you were in a coma or imprisoned in South America) there was a rather popular band in town this week. The Rolling Stones? Yeah, they took over Burl’s Creek with 70,000 friends or so…
