See what psychics have to say about your future at Barrie's Mind and Body Psychic Fair

A computerized palm reader will be one of the stars of Barrie's first ever Mind and Body Psychic Fair.

"People can actually pay to have their hand read by a computer. It's kinda neat, " said event producer Lynne Anne Hill. "It'll look at your palm and read all of your life lines and talk about whether you'll find love, whether you'll have a family. What your direction will be."

The computer, called Amazing Computer Palm Readings, will be the high-tech version of the nine other psychics appearing at the show on Sunday.

Hill describes the psychics as coaches to help people with their lives and she claims they're authentic. 

"They're not flaky whatsoever," said Hill. "These are tried and true people. All considered highly intuitive psychic mediums."

Lori McDermott is a Barrie medium who will be at the Fair.

McDermott says she started to notice her gift at the age of seven when she was able to predict and "see" things that would happen.

Sometimes the visions were happy but often they were unpleasant.

"It is a blessing and it is a curse," said McDermott of her psychic powers. 

McDermott says she has worked with Toronto Police and a Barrie officer on a couple of missing person and murder cases.

She says most of her clients wish for money and love but she says she can see much more.

"I'm hoping that people will get some insight and some resolution," said McDermott. "And some answers and some peace of mind."

Prices vary among psychics but McDermott will be charging $40 for half hour and $70 for full hour reading.

The fair features psychics, mediums, clairvoyants, astrologers, holistic healers and many more super perceptive types along with lots of local vendors.

You can participate in a private reading or check out products ranging from crystals to smudge kits.

"Seeing a psychic is like going to a therapist," said McDermott. "You want some closure. And you want to know what's ahead for you, your future.""

Organizers are expecting up to 500 people to attend.

Admission is free and the fair runs on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Lions Gate Banquet Hall located at 386 Blake Street.
