Calgary, AB,

Skate, swim and dance into 2015 with The City of Calgary’s New Year’s Eve celebrations

This New Year’s Eve, Calgarians can ring in 2015 with a free Outdoor Celebration and count down to midnight at Olympic Plaza, a free Family Dance Party at the Municipal Building atrium, or a Family Pool Party at Village Square Leisure Centre.

Outdoor Celebration

Count down to midnight with a winter party at Olympic Plaza where festivities run from 9 p.m. to midnight. Bundle up, bring your ice skates or borrow from us onsite, and cuddle up by the firepit and sip hot chocolate. Enjoy music, ice sculptures and fantastic fire dance performances. Grab your sweetie for that News Year’s kiss, and watch the spectacular countdown to officially ring in 2015.

Family Dance Party

Taking place at the Municipal Building from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., the Family Dance Party is a free, safe and warm way to celebrate with dancing, games, crafts and living statues. Wear neon, white or anything that glows, and join in on the kid’s countdown at 9 p.m.

Family Pool Party

Families can also choose to swim, jump, splash and slide their way into 2015 with a pool party at Village Square Leisure Centre from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Boogie to the sounds of a DJ in the wave pool with inflatable toys, nuclear balls and bouncers. The party also includes crafts, treats, prizes, and a pool party countdown! Regular admission rates apply.

“New Year’s celebrations at Olympic Plaza and the Municipal Building are always some of the best,” said Mayor Naheed Nenshi. “This year’s festivities are a chance for Calgarians of all ages to ring in 2015 together in our great public spaces”

“However you celebrate this New Year’s Eve, please make a plan to get home safely,” said Mayor Nenshi. “I’m very pleased to see that Calgary Transit is piloting late night buses and CTrains that will run until 3 a.m. So have a very Happy New Year, Calgary! Here’s to a wonderful and prosperous 2015.”
