New Year's Eve Celebrations 2016


New Year's Eve 2016

Calgarians celebrated New Year’s Eve with three parties thrown by The City of Calgary. Citizens were invited to attend two free events in the downtown core; a Family Dance Party at the Municipal Building and an Outdoor Celebration at Olympic Plaza, as well as a low-cost family event at Village Square Leisure Centre.

Revellers enjoyed dancing, games, crafts, magic, fire performances and a special kids' countdown at the Family Dance Party and then got to continue the fun with skating, ice sculptures and carving demos, singing and storytelling by the fire, and a spectacular countdown to midnight and fireworks at the Outdoor Celebration. The Swim and Sport party at Village Square Leisure Centre kept families busy with arts, crafts, games, obstacle courses, a bouncy house and DJ music for fun in the wave pool and slides.
