Barrie Summer Events July Line Up!


Things are starting to heat up in Barrie, including the weather! Downtown Barrie has allowed most of the downtown bars and coffee shops to put up a patio that extends out onto the sidewalk, I personally think this is a great idea and love the way people are coming out to support the local establishments and get a tan while they are at it.

Here are a few great ideas to get out and enjoy during the month of July,
