Since the new year is right around the corner, there’s only a few days to figure out the best way to ring in the new year. Obviously you could pick the boring thing to do and just sit home and watch the celebrations on TV, but who really wants to do that?
Since this year it’s supposed to be incredibly cold (projected at – 14) I’ve compiled a list of the top six ways to celebrate the new year, without freezing your butt off!
Gage Park in Brampton
Always a good time, and free, this family friendly event is good for all ages. Headlining this year is the well known rock band, The Sheepdogs.

Just outside of Collingwood, you can bet this will probably be the coldest location to visit. But don’t worry! This event is held indoors, so you won’t have to worry about freezing g your pretty little head off. The village of Blue Mountain is hosting g a “New years eve Gatsby Soiree”. A night dedicated to the 20s, the evening will be alight with bright lights, professional flapper dancers, and music to keep you dancing well into the night. This is an adults only affair, starting at 10, so put on your best dancing shoes and prepare for a night that would do Jay Gatsby proud.
