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…


Welcome to the neighborhood @finestfitnessgym! Their Lennox avenue location had a ribbon cutting ceremony on Sunday to their celebrate doors opening.



Speaking of anniversaries, congrats also going out to @verybarriecolts, a great blog dedicated to all things Barrie Colts.


Although we live over 5600 kilometers away from the United Kingdom, Barrie was doing a spot on impression of London this week with all the fog. And @brandonstallard was out there capturing it!



Did you know about the great Mom-based group @lifewithababysimcoe? They put together fun events for parents with younger kids in Barrie and Simcoe County! And they were out in force on Friday.



If we could take a moment to shamelessly plug ourselves here, this week we launched a curated Spotify playlist composed entirely of local bands (which you should totally check out) And we’ll defo be adding local alt rockers @crastband, who dropped their first album on the channel on Saturday!


Do you follow @BarrieWeatherRecords on twitter? Because even if you don’t have a thing for weather stats/info, the local stuff these guys post will impress. For instance, did you know this about Jun 7th?
