Downtown Barrie has been invaded…by ghosts!

Don't be scared, they're pretty friendly.

If you’re looking for something fun and unique to do this week, Theatre by the Bay is hosting a special new performance titled “The Ghost Watchers” in Downtown Barrie.

Part walking tour, part interactive experience, The Ghost Watchers will take participants on a guided loop around the downtown core where they will use their phones to scan special QR codes, allowing them to see a cutting-edge augmented reality experience!

The show takes around 90-minutes to complete, is suitable for ages 14 and up. Headphones, along with a fully charged cell phone with a data plan, are recommended. The show takes place rain or shine, so be sure to bring everything you’ll need.

Head over to the website for more details and to book your ticket. There is also a test QR code on the site so you can watch a sample AR performance and see how your device works with the experience.
