New Year’s Eve in Edmonton
New Year’s Eve celebrations are right around the corner. It’s time to say goodbye to 2014 and hello to 2015. It has been a fun and exciting year for Toyota on the Trail and we can’t wait to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Edmonton. This year there are many local events to check out and explore. From outdoor music, ice skating, fireworks and more, Edmonton has some great family friendly activities to take part in this New Year’s Eve.
The first New Year’s Eve event to check out is the 15th annual New Year’s Eve Downtown festival. It is a free, fun and family friendly event that takes place inside City Hall. The event starts at 7 p.m. with children’s crafts, activities, magicians, balloon artists, face painters and live music. After you get your fill at City Hall, bundle up and enjoy some outdoor activities including hay rides, free ice skate rentals, food concessions and midnight fireworks. There will even be main stage entertainment starting at 9:15 p.m. Another fun activity to enjoy in Downtown Edmonton is Frozen on the Square. Bundle up and enjoy a free screening of Frozen at the Plaza at 7:15 p.m. or enjoy the movie while ice skating around the City Hall rink.
While parking is available for $1 after 5 p.m. at the City Hall, there will also be discounted or free public transportation available. The Edmonton Transit System (ETS) is offering free rides from 6 p.m. on December 31 to 3:30 a.m. on January 1. Any money collected in the ETS fare boxes will be given to the Donate a Ride campaign. This campaign uses donations to provide transit tickets to low-income Edmonton families that are in need of transportation to get employment, education and social services. This program provides thousands of rides every year.
New Year’s Eve is a great time to celebrate and have fun with your loved ones. Take advantage of these free activities and commemorate the passing of another year. Another great way to start the new year is with a new Toyota or Scion vehicle. If you have been waiting all year to buy a new car, now is the perfect time to buy from Toyota on the Trail.
