There’s no lack of parties to attend if you’re looking for a New Year’s Eve celebration. Here’s a rundown of some of the different events happening the evening of Monday, Dec. 31.

The Pyramid Recreation Centre will be hosting a family New Year’s Eve celebration from 6 to 8 p.m. Patrons of all ages can enjoy a free skate sponsored by Tim Hortons or a free swim sponsored by Scotiabank. There will also be free face-painting, food available to purchase, and a balloon-drop at 8:15 with prizes to be won. The Black and Gold 19+ event that had been advertised has been cancelled.

River Valley Golf and Country Club and Winter Tube Slide will hold an all ages tubing party, beginning at 8 p.m. (weather permitting). Tubing will wrap up at 11 p.m., but the fun continues inside with karaoke, cake, and party favours. This family oriented event goes until midnight and costs $25 per person.

Doors to the Royal Canadian Legion’s New Year’s Dance open at 8 p.m. The Blues Daddies will rock the house from 9 to 1, with a luncheon being served at 11. $15 per person.
