Shatter It! International Women’s Day

Chillz Lounge and Soaring Finances hosts this Women’s Day celebration, with focus on women in business.

The night includes a custom mocktail called Shattered Glass, a full app menu, as well as
swag Bags & door Prizes.

A portion of ticket sales will be donated to Because I’m a Girl.

 

Snowshoe Under Moonlight

There’s only a few weeks left to take in a 2km guided moonlight snowshoe through the forest at Horseshoe.

The resort offers these winter walks through March as long as weather permits, so this could be one of the last weekends. Afterwards, warm up by the fire while you roast marshmallows and sip on some hot chocolate.

 

See The Colts

With only 3 home games left in the regular season, this Saturday is the second last weekend game at the BMC. There’s always a ton of fun in game, with giveaways and draws. And it’s the perfect excuse to have pizza and hot dogs for dinner.

 

Throw Some Axes

Ya know what goes together like Post Malone and strippers? Axe Throwing and Booze! We can’t do much about hooking you up with the former, but the latter is available right here in Barrie.

Bullseye Axe Throwing is on King street and offers you and a group the chance to throw the Eff out of Axes in a fun environment. They’ve got coaches on site to help make sure you hit the mark and not accidentally hit the wall…or your date.

 

Group Sing-Along @ City Hall

Caswell Community Choirs takes over the rotunda on Saturday to jam in as many singers as legally possible for a rendition of Here Comes The Sun.

Designed to kick the crap out of the last days of winter, it’s totally free to attend.

If you haven’t checked out the Choir before, this is the perfect opportunity to take in the full awesomeness. Someone take video!!

6 Things You Have To Do in Barrie Before Winter is Gone

6 Things You Have To Do in Barrie Before Winter is Gone

GET OUT AND ENJOY WINTER’S LAST GASP

Winter in Barrie is almost over (praise be) but the final mile is always the longest. And with storm level snow coming this week, we are in definite need of some distractions from the ice and wind over the next few weeks.

Luckily there are plenty of events, places and happenings to check out before Spring arrives on March 19th.

 

6 Things You Have To Do in Barrie Before Winter is Gone

 

SKATE THE TRAIL AT SIMCOE MUSEUM

The 1km loop skate trail is open Tuesdays and Thursdays every weekend while the weather permits. It takes the skaters around the heritage buildings and through the scenic forest path surrounding the museum. Grab a hot chocolate, load up the fam jam and glide through the trail before it melts.

 

GO SKIING OR SNOWSHOEING

Horseshoe Resort and Snow Valley are just a few of the nearby locales where you can rent snow shoes and traverse the snowy wilderness. You can make a weekend out of it at both and try your hand (or foot) at skiing while you’re there, with hills and trails for both downhill and cross country.

 

TRY DOGSLEDDING

Be honest…one of your #lifegoals is to stand behind a dog sled and yell “mush!” at the top of your lungs. (No judgement)

You can experience this unique winter adventure and explore Barrie’s snowy countryside on pristine trails through local kennels, including Winddrift. During the tours there is time to stop and enjoy the scenery, as well as warm drinks and snacks along the way. If you do the full day experience, you’ll be treated to a hot chili lunch.

 

GO TO A COLTS GAME

The boys of winter are creeping up in the standings and there are still a few home games left before the season wraps. The in game experience is always amazing, and includes lots of giveaways.

 

HAVE A LOW KEY HANG AT MERIDIAN PLACE

If you haven’t already, grab a java from one of the great local cafes and take a stroll through downtown. The festival of lights around Heritage park goes until the end of winter, and you can end off the walk with a warm up at outdoor fire pits.
