10 ways to Ring in the New Year in Fredericton!

It is that time of year again! That time when we stop to reflect on what the year 2018 has meant to us (good, bad & ugly) and we look for our best way of greeting the New Year! I’ve been on the hunt and found 11 options for events taking place in Fredericton and I think there is something on the list to suit everyone’s style. Check it out here (in no particular order):
