The last weekend before Halloweekend is upon us. Which means you should practice telling your creepiest stories and load your streaming platform playlists with Halloween movies and every Treehouse of Horror the Simpsons ever produced. (Even the lame second season one)
But for those not eerie inclined, there are alot of fun events that have nothing at all to do with the scary season. Here’s a few to check out!

Sonder Studio celebrates their first anniversary and hosts another Shop Local market this Saturday. The day includes live music performances from BKnox and Olivia Grace. Over 23 Vendors will be on hand, all from the Barrie area.
