New Years Eve ends anniversary party

Ring in the New Year with family and friends in downtown Fergus on Dec. 31.

To complete the town’s 175th anniversary celebrations, there will be music, fireworks, and festivities to help close the final event.

The event will display some of the new and coming talent in Fergus, featuring musical acts for all ages. There will be activities and entertainment for the whole family, including a special “early” New Year’s celebration for the little ones at 9pm, complete with fireworks. Enjoy another count down celebration again at midnight. It all starts at 6:30pm in the downtown core between St. Andrew and St. David Streets.

Come for the hot cocoa at Melville United Church and Thomson Funeral Home, enjoy live music, story book charac­ter Geronimo Stilton, film screenings of Fergus Then and Now, children’s stories at the library, and a ride on a horse-drawn trolley.
