So as we wait out this last full month of full on snow and ice, check out a few fun events around town! And be sure to hit up our events page to find a full list of stuff to do.

 

14 Things To Do in Barrie This February

HIT THE WARM MUG TRAIL

Every Saturday and Sunday during the month of February, head downtown, venture along the Hot Cocoa Trail and indulge in signature cups of hot chocolate while sipping, shopping and supporting local.

With each purchase of a signature Hot Cocoa Trail beverage, fill out a ballot and enter to win one of three Hot Cocoa Trail Vouchers.

 

Pub Trivia

No less than three establishments offer a chance for you to channel your inner Ken Jennings.

Redline Brewhouse hosts a general quiz night, while Fioon MacCool’s brings out the Muggles for a  Harry Potter themed night, as well as a Friends night! Hit up Town Trivia’s website to find more Jeopardy-esque around town.
