There are many great ways to celebrate our New Year in Eau Claire. One exciting option downtown is the ‘Light Up Eau Claire’ celebration. This year’s event features live entertainment at ten venues, two extravagant lantern parades and a fireworks display to cap off the night.
Free activities begin at 4 p.m., but you can purchase a wristband to enjoy live music and entertainment throughout downtown, or perhaps dance at the New Year’s Eve Gala at The Lismore Hotel. Fireworks from Phoenix Park follow.
A Rock’n New Year’s Eve Family Skate is scheduled at Hobbs Ice Arena from 6 to 9 pm. The event includes open skating, a DJ and inflatable screen, a balloon drop with prizes, a skating obstacle course, boot games, and a hot chocolate bar. Other events at the Children’s Museum, Action City, and the early Light Up Eau Claire Lantern Parade also focus on celebrations for children and their families. I hope you enjoy your evening and celebrate safely.
Enjoy and looking forward to 2018!!!
