THE LONG WEEKEND BRINGS PLENTY OF FUN

Hard to believe we are actually about to welcome August. Although given the way 2020 has developed, maybe we should be happy to see it coming to a close.

On the positive side, reopenings around the province continue! And that, along with some good weather makes for plenty of fun this Civic long weekend.

3 Things to Do This Weekend

Although the full on festival is on hold until 2021, it’s still the 50th anniversary of Kempenfest this year. And to celebrate, the annual festival is turning over their social media channels to boatloads of local artists, artisans and performers.  Take a half an hour this weekend to check it out!

A new exhibition opens tomorrow! The Uncanny Outdoors presents contemporary Canadian artworks from the MacLaren’s Permanent Collection that render the natural world strange. The uncanny nature of each work emphasizes the ways in which our understanding of the landscape is conditioned by how we enjoy, settle and extract value from it.

TACO TUESDAY (ON A WEEKEND) AT THE ALLEY

Although night clubs haven’t been cleared to reopen yet, the night life experience is coming back this weekend from one of Barrie’s best clubs.

The Alley morphs into Taco Alley on Friday night. The clus is taking over a downtown parking lot to serve shots and food through the long weekend, with service until 2am!
