Congrats! The first week of school is in the bag (get it…bag???)
Anyway. As per usual at this time of year, everyone is dragging their behinds a bit. Weekends in September come as a mercy and a much needed break for most of us. Yet that’s no excuse for staying in! The city by the Lake offers a boatload of fun this Friday through Sunday.
Get your Geek on (part 1) as Canada’s largest and longest Running Video Game & Geek Culture Trade Show takes over Eastview arena. It’s a packed jam with 140 Tables filled with Video Games, Artist, Toys, Action Figures and board games. It all goes down on Sunday at 11am.
Get your Geek on (part 2) at the Barrie Comic Con on Saturday.
Dive into more nerdom with comic books, new & vintage toys, anime and manga and loads more. Paul Amos, who starred in Lost Girl and voiced a couple of Assasin’s Creed video games is in house signing autographs. And the awesome cosplayers will be out in force.
If (wedding) bells and rings are more your thing, the Barrie wedding expo is happening at Liberty North. You can connect with Barrie wedding pros, live design palettes and put your name in for a $1000 Shopping Spree Giveaway.
“There’s always room for more records” said…everyone who has ever collected vinyl. And another glorious opportunity to add to your milk crates comes on Sunday at Ferndale Banquet Hall. Doors are at 10am!
ORO’S WORLD FAIR
Just a 15 minute drive out of Barrie, one of the longest running agro fairs in North America happensin Oro. Check out the Tractor pulls, inflatable castles, food and drink and rock crushing and demolition displays all day.
RVs hold a special place in pop culture history. Where would be as a society without Walt and Jesse’s roving meth lab or Uncle Eddie’s mobile home rolling up to the Griswold’s house at Xmas?
You can show your appreciation first hand this Saturday in Elmvale. The Vintage Trailer Show And Shine happens at Georgian Bay Park. 9 retro RVs will be on display for campers and attendees to vote on, as well as live music and food. (Bonus points for anyone that can find an 8 Track player)
