This well could be one of the best weekends of the year as far as the weather goes, so if you didn’t get a chance to get to the beach during the cool, wet summer, this might be your chance!
There’s tons happening around Central Ontario. ROCK 95 is out at a number of events happening this weekend, including the 8th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event Saturday in support of the Women’s and Children’s Shelter of Barrie. Also Saturday, ROCK 95’s first ever Rock, Paper, Scissors Invitational goes at Sticky Fingers Bar and Grill. Some lucky person is going to win $10,000 just for playing this fun game we used to play as kids, to determine who would pick up the tab, or any other number of decisions that are tough to make between two people. The fun starts at 2pm.
Sunday, the annual Terry Fox Run goes in Barrie and many communities in our regional area, across Canada and in different parts of the world with proceeds to support cancer research.
