New Year’s Eve in the V3H

At our house, New Year’s Eve is a low key affair. For one thing, my husband works pretty much every year, often sneaking in the door at around 11:40pm. For another, we have a 4-year-old and a 1-year-old. There just isn’t a lot of partying in our lives at the moment.

However, you may not share our New Year’s blues. In fact, you may be footloose and fancy-free and looking for a party. Or maybe you just want a chance to take your kids skating. Either way, we have tracked down some great events that are happening in the Tri-Cities on December 31, so hopefully there is something to tickle your fancy.

From 1-4pm the Port Coquitlam Recreation Complex [map] is holding a New Year’s Eve Skate. It will be an afternoon of fun, games and music on the ice. After skating, take a break and warm up in the lobby with free hot chocolate and hot apple cider, then participate at one of the craft stations. For more information call 604.927.7970 or email

The Giggle Dam Dinner Theatre rings in 2010 with Laugh with the Dam Stars at their theatre in downtown Port Coquitlam [map]. The doors open at 7:30 pm for the once a year only musical extravaganza, featuring a 6 piece live band and a plethora of well known celebrity impersonations. The chef kicks it up in the kitchen featuring your choice of quality main dishes and DAM champagne and party favors for the big countdown. After midnight they let it all hang out as the live band provides great classic rock. For more information, or to buy tickets, call 604.944.4453.

The Red Robinson Show Theatre in Coquitlam [map] is welcoming the New Year with Party 2010, featuring dinner and a performance by Tower of Power. Doors open at 7:30pm for dinner, or if you would like to attend the show only you can arrive at 10pm. There will be party favours and a champagne toast. And, of course the renowned horn-driven funk music from Tower of Power, which emerged from the rich San Francisco Bay area music scene in the early 1970s. Tickets are available from TicketMaster at 604.280.4444.

And, of course, the Evergreen Cultural Centre is celebrating New Year’s Eve with QuiRING in the New Year, which we highlighted on Monday.

No matter how you choose to ring in the New Year, we hope that you will be safe. And we would like to wish you all the best in 2010!
