Barrie throws a beautiful party on July 1st; the festivities take part in our downtown and along the waterfront. The streetscape becomes a pedestrian paradise, rolling right into Promenade Days, with music on the stage starting at 4 p.m. Don’t miss the official cake cutting at 6 p.m., as Cakes by Design creates a themed masterpiece that is almost too pretty to eat!
