10 ways to Ring in the New Year in Fredericton!

As we wind up the last month of the decade, it is my opinion that we absolutely must celebrate and mark this auspicious time! Bringing in the New Year means we are leaving the old year behind in order to escort in the new and with that in mind I have pulled together a list to help you decide how you’ll make the transition. Take a look at the 10 options listed below - some events are suitable for the whole family, some include a live music element and all will have you smiling to greet 2020!
