New York New Years
New York New Years expands indoors this year.
Festivals Kelowna is once again producing its Valley First New York New Years family celebration on December 31 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Jim Stuart Park, across from City Hall.
"This event is one of the only all ages appropriate New Years Eve celebrations in our community,” says Renata Mills, Executive Director with Festivals Kelowna. “2015 marks the fourth year of this fun event, and based on the terrific response from the community and our event partners and sponsors, we know our community is having a great time ringing in the New Year together.”
New York New Years is free to attend, and will again include skating at the outdoor ice rink, and much more.
