The Snowbirds will be in Barrie on June 28th to kick-off the City’s Canada150 celebrations. Snowbird pilots Capt. Blake McNaughton and Capt. Paul Faulkner flew into Lake Simcoe Regional Airport this morning to make the announcement.
The event is being put on in partnership with Base Borden, with support from Georgian International. The show will take place over Kempenfelt Bay, and will include military displays from CFB Borden.
“This will be an exciting show for Barrie and it’s the perfect way to kick-off our Canada150 celebrations,” said Arin Donnelly, City of Barrie Community Events Coordinator. “We’re extremely thankful to our partners for making this event possible.”
The Snowbird show will lead into Downtown Barrie’s Promenade Days (June 30 to July 2) and the City’s annual Canada Day event on July 1. Plans are under way for other Canada150 events in Barrie. Details will be announced in the coming months.
