For the second year in a row, the city presents Hello Winter – six weeks of fun, engaging and safe activities to help residents and visitors enjoy Barrie’s winter, Feb. 5 to March 20.
Hello Winter takes place in lieu of Winterfest – a Barrie tradition and one of Ontario’s premier winter festivals. Hello Winter 2022 includes some popular programming from Winterfest, re-imagined.
“This year, Hello Winter’s theme focuses on light, to brighten the cold season and inspire a sense of hope,” says Steve Lee-Young, manager of recreation programs. “By spreading the event out over February and March and re-creating classic Winterfest favourites, we are able to safely offer experiences that celebrate what winter has to offer in our city.”
Along the theme of light, Hello Winter will feature temporary light-based art installations, including digital art projected in downtown public spaces, (displayed Feb. 18 to March 20) and an interactive installation called Chimes (displayed Feb. 20 to March 20), which will fill Meridian Place with a symphony of sound and light.
The details for the first week of the April 2023 Fitness Challenge have been posted in the Asskicker Army Group! Coach Jill has developed three options for this challenge: Walking Program, Couch to 5K Running Program, 10K Running Program.
