The Weekender – Victoria Day

The Weekender – Victoria Day

The Weekender Is Powered by The The Queens Hometown Bar & Grill: The home of live music in Barrie and your destination for great food and great times!

Happening this weekend in the Barrie area…

Dino Park @ Georgian Mall

The closest you can get to Jurassic Park without being eaten while in the port-o-potty happens at Georgian mall this weekend.

Specifically, Dino Park is an immersive walk-thru experience packed with roaring animatronic life-size dinosaurs, carnival rides, games and food.

In addition, there is loads of parking around the old Sears building and the surrounding lot.

Live Music

Live music and long weekends go together like patios and beer. And there is a ton of both on offer starting on Friday.

In Barrie, Courtney Bowles plays at Steyn House, while the Indie Distributor hosts their usual lineup of shows on Saturday at the 400 Market. Further, the Queens has tunes Friday and Saturday starting at 5:30.

Additionally, in Orillia, Sarah Harmer plays the Opera House, while Tom Cochrane hits Rama.

Spring Treasure Dive

Any budding Jacques Cousteau’s in the family? They can score a hunk of sunken treasure this weekend at Minet’s Point.

Scuba 2000 hosts a treasure map dive on Sunday, with a chance to win a grand prize.

Moreover, you can find out more on their website.

Trivia And Tunes @ The Queens

Of course, if you are too impatient for Friday to arrive, you can kick off the weekend early at the Queens tonight and try your hand at trivia.

Beginning at 7, it’s a chance to show off your useless knowledge skills, and earn eternal (or at least nightly) bragging rights as a quiz master.

Likewise, there is plenty of live music through the weekend at the Q.

And if you just don’t want the night to end, step over to the club side after 10pm, with DJs on the decks and more drink specials to be had.
