Every Wednesday, we’ll focus on one service or industry in Barrie and highlight how they are staying connected to you during this latest lockdown. Whether it’s online sales, curbside pickup or virtual sessions, we’ll share the ways you can support them. Even if it’s as simple as providing you with their online presence so you can leave them a positive review!

This week we focus on Barrie’s Yoga spots.

Social Recap: The Week That Was in Barrie Sept. 15th

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

There are three certainties in life…

Death.

Taxes.

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…

 

This weekend went to the dogs. Literally. The Barrie OSPCA walk for life happened on Sunday and Lincoln The Bulloxer was there to rep Boxers and American Bulldogs

Sunday is a day of relaxation for most of us, but this Sunday in particular was special, as it was the international day of peace. And  few Yoga enthusiasts took over the roof of Hooligan’s to celebrate.

 

Oh yeah…there was this little thing called the Troubadour festival on Friday and Saturday…

 

 

 

 

Oh yeah, and there was this other thing called Comic Con…
