First Night Surrey 2007

Ryan asked a little while ago what we’re all doing for New Years [mbv]. Well, here’s a great family-oriented, non-alcoholic option: First Night Surrey

Date: Sunday, December 31, 2006

Location: Central City Plaza – 13450 – 102nd Avenue, Surrey

Time: 4:00pm – midnight

Tickets: $10 for Adults – $5 for Children (6-10 years old) – 5 & under free

There will be ‘cosmic’ skating at the North Surrey Rec. Centre along with live music, craft tents, balloon art, etc.

There used to be First Night celebrations around the Lower Mainland and I believe there used to be one downtown as well. But I suppose the kiddies and family crowd doesn’t mesh well with whatever happens on Granville Street since we haven’t seen a First Night downtown in several years.

First Night Surrey is one of only two First Night celebrations, fully-sanctioned by First Night International, scheduled for New Year’s Eve in BC. Whistler will also be holding an official First Night celebration. First Night is a celebration of the New Year through the arts that marks the passage from the old year to the new with art & music, ritual and festivity. First Night fosters public appreciation of visual and performing arts through an innovative, diverse and high quality New Year’s Eve program which provides a shared cultural experience, accessible and affordable to all.
