The Barrie Baycats defeated the Kitchener Panthers 8-2 on Saturday evening to take a 3-0 series lead in their best-of-seven league championship series.

Here’s what went down in Barrie last week…

Among the many, many, MANY reasons Barrie is a terrific place to be in the summer, is the plethora of outdoor music. There are shows every Friday at Meridian place, and every Tuesday and Thursday the Emerging Artist program helps local talent gets discovered with live performances.

 

Speaking of talent, there is certainly alot of it from the photography sphere. Check out this Batman-eque shot of the Spirit Catcher from @punjab_eh_in_barrie

You know what’s great about walking downtown? (Besides patios) Those fun billboards that alot of the local businesses display. They really do bring a smile to your face. @social705 does it as well as most

And when it comes to downtown, have a look at this terrific piece from @breenseven! Can we get it in the MacLaren Art Centre?

 

 

And when it comes to art, Georgian College knows a thing or two about hanging cool stuff on the walls…

 

 

 

 

And a big congrats to all of the winners from the 24th Annual Canadian National Mountain Bike Championships, at Horseshoe valley. Cyclists from all over Canada attended, and hometowners @quintondisera and @petey_d were among the winners!
