Among the many benefits of short work weeks is that the following weekends always arrive all the earlier.
And as per usual, said weekend is jammed with stuff to do in and around Barrie! Particularly of the ghoulish pre-Halloween quality.
Hit the title of each to get linked with each event!
Happening in and around Barrie This Weekend…
Dance Dynamics is hosting a Glow In The Dark DJ Dance Party on Saturday. It’s a competitive team fundraiser, with pizza drinks and glow accessories. If your kids can kick it, this might right in their wheelhouse.

Bring up to 20 items and swap them for a token. The tokens will then be exchanged for each swap item you choose on October 20th.
