Thank you to all who participated in the 2017 Hot Cocoa Trail!  Together we collected $700 for Barrie Out of the Cold.

Congratulations to Sarai Porretta, the winner of the ‘2018 Hot Cocoa Trail Prize Voucher’. 

We look forward to seeing what flavours are in store in 2018!

It’s cold outside – why not warm up by following the hot cocoa trail in Downtown Barrie. Offering over 10 unique takes on the traditional winter favourite, the hot cocoa trail provides a fun winter activity, as well as an opportunity to do good and support a local charity.

Thank you for all your contributions!

Warm up with a delicious hot drink, a chance to win, and a warm fuzzy feeling!
