New Years in the Tri-Cities

New Years Eve Port Moody Coquitlam 2013

Now that Christmas has come and gone, you can finally focus on New Years.  The Tri-Cities has a variety of options of things to do so you can celebrate close to home rather than making the trek into Vancouver.  Think cheaper cab rides!  Or better yet, avoid trying to find a taxi and call Operation Red Nose.  Run by volunteers, they will get you and your car safely home at the end of the night.  Rides are by donation and all proceeds go to KidSports.  For more information, you can call them at 778.866.6673.

Below are the Tri-Cities year-end celebrations and even a 2013 kick-off celebration that will be happening on January 1st.  Whatever you choose to do, have a fun and safe night.  Happy New Year!
