December events in Barrie!

We have had a very early start to winter this year. I'm sure some of you welcome the cold and snow and everything that come along with it. Snow mobiles, skiing, ice hockey out on a rink, snowmen, warm fires and some hot chocolate at the end of a day.

Here are some ideas to get you out and about during the month of December:
