As another year comes to a close, one question remains – where am I going to go to party? I had been under the impression that most major cities held free events on New Year’s, but after some lengthy searches on the internet this morning I’ve discovered that that’s simply not the case. If you live in Southern Ontario though, we’ve got two annual events that are always a ton of fun this time of year. I’ve been to both, so I can vouch for the fun factor personally.
Toronto – Nathan Phillips Square. Free Admission. Featuring performances by Hedley, George, Keshia ChantÃ© and Measha Brueggergosman. Also Featuring: Ed the Sock. More info..
Niagara Falls – Queen Victoria Park. Free Admission. Featuring performances by Foreigner, Colin James and Justin Hines. More info..
Living 20 minutes from Niagara Falls and being a HUGE fan of kitschy 80’s rock, I’m rather ashamed that I won’t be making it out there tonight to see Foreigner. I was looking forward to the delicious irony of watching them perform “Cold As Ice” in unseasonably warm winter weather. Sigh… C’est la vie.
If you know of any free event in your area, please, post a comment here. Your fellow SmartCanucks will thank you. 🙂
