How to ring in New Year

Looking for something fun to do this New Year's Eve?

Don't head to Big White unless you already have a room. Senior V.P. Micheal J. Ballingall says there's no room at the Inn. "Our accommodations are full so if you don't have a place to stay then please don't come up. If you have a couch to surf that's fine but staying in your car in the parking lot is not safe."

Balingall says there are still a few tickets available for some of the on-hill parties, which include 2 sets of fireworks one at 8:15 p.m. and another to ring in the New Year at midnight.

Silver Star is offering snowcat dinner tours along with fireworks on the hill and Apex will have two firework shows as well, one at 6 p.m. and one at midnight. Fireworks will be at the bottom of the Okanagan Terrain Park followed by live music at the Gunbarrel.

If you're looking for a family-friendly event in Kelowna check out the annual New Years celebration in Stuart Park, featuring live music and fireworks at 9 p.m. Now in the sixth year, the celebrations features activities for all ages including a "Snow Zone" featuring snow painting, air hockey, drop-in games and dancing, plus free hot chocolate and goodies.
