3 Weekend Events To Check Out in Barrie
And just like that, we are on the precipice of Autumn. (We’ll pause while you take a moment to swear or yell at the sky)
Although warmer climes are likely with us for at least a few more weeks, this Saturday and Sunday are the last official days of the hot season. Luckily, 2021’s scorching stanza is going out with a bang! Scroll on for a trio of happenings to send off this summer in style…
The annual indie music fest kicks off this Friday in Holland Landing. Gussapolooza has been bringing the best of the indie music scene from Southern Ontario together in a camp and concert event setting since 2016.
This year’s lineup features a ton of Barrie talent, including Bigfoot’s Hand, 30 Going on 13, the Saydes and more. With a dedicated acoustic stage as well as the main thoroughfare (and comedy!) this year’s jamboree of jams is destined to impress.
You can score tickets via their Insta page, as well as a link to the Gussapolooza Spotify playlist. And check out our chat with ‘polooza founder Russ Robson on Uncover The Music.
The City’s month long virtual/interactive gaming blitz continues this weekend, with a couple of different options for gaming geared fun.
You and the kiddos can compete head-to-head in an all-ages virtual 2v2 Rocket League tournament hosted by We Got Game – streamed live on Twitch starting at 1:00pm on Saturday. Moreover, it’s free to enter and there are prizes to be won. And bragging rights over dinner for the next few months.
If getting outside is on your to-do list, try the Biba Playgrounds app. Find playgrounds around Barrie equipped with Biba augmented reality tags. The app offers mini games, for both individual and co-op play where you are given tasks and challenges in the playground to complete the online game.
And finally, what better way to work off the stress of the week than through full on Nerf gun war? The Barrie Circus company hosts Nerf battles every Saturday night through the fall, starting this weekend.
