Seasons greetings! I would like to wish you a safe and fun holiday. It has been a busy year, and I am looking forward to whatever 2015 may bring.
If you’re looking for some activities this New Year’s Eve, take a look at some of the events that The City is putting on. The Outdoor Celebration and Family Dance Party are free of charge:
Count down to midnight with a winter party at Olympic Plaza where festivities run from 9 p.m. to midnight. Bundle up, bring your ice skates or borrow from us onsite, and cuddle up by the firepit and sip hot chocolate. Enjoy music, ice sculptures and fantastic fire dance performances. Grab your sweetie for that News Year’s kiss, and watch the spectacular countdown to officially ring in 2015.
Family Dance Party
Taking place at the Municipal Building from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., the Family Dance Party is a free, safe and warm way to celebrate with dancing, games, crafts and living statues. Wear neon, white or anything that glows, and join in on the kid’s countdown at 9 p.m.
Family Pool Party
Families can also choose to swim, jump, splash and slide their way into 2015 with a pool party at Village Square Leisure Centre from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Boogie to the sounds of a DJ in the wave pool with inflatable toys, nuclear balls and bouncers. The party also includes crafts, treats, prizes, and a pool party countdown! Regular admission rates apply.
There will also be extended New Year’s Eve transit service.
Here is what service on New Year’s Eve will look like:
• CTrains will be running every 15 minutes with the last CTrain leaving downtown at 3 a.m.
• Routes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 17, 24, 112, and 301 will be running every 30-45 minutes with last trips leaving downtown at approximately 3 a.m.
Happy holidays from our team to you and yours.
