Join us on Saturday, December 31 for a New Year’s Eve celebration!

Crafts in the Kids Club from 1:30 to 3 p.m. and a free skating and themed games will take place at the Canada Games Centre from 3 to 5:30 p.m.

The party will then move to Shipyards park from 7 to 9 p.m. for more free activities.

Bring your skates and sleds, and enjoy apple cider or hot chocolate (bring your own mug). We’ll have a bonfire going to warm you up, popcorn, and BGC Yukon will be hosting games. The Frank Slim Building will be open, and washrooms will be available.

The 10 to 15-minute fireworks show is set to begin at 8 p.m., weather permitting.

Some other great vantage points for taking in the fireworks display are: the Airport Trail, the Downtown Escarpment Trail, and the Riverfront Trail.
