New Year's Eve 2014 in Saskatoon

posted by My Saskatoon    |   December 30, 2014 10:57

It's been an awesome year! We at My Saskatoon are looking forward to all that 2015 will bring, and we can't wait to ring in the New Year. There will be some big gatherings tomorrow night in Saskatoon, including events at The Heights, The Bassment, and Capitol Music Club that are sure to be a great time. Whether you're heading out on the town, planning a party, or having a quiet night in, it's nice to mark the coming of the New Year in some way. If you haven't made plans yet, here are a few ideas that will ensure a memorable NYE. 

 

Skating at PotashCorp Plaza

If you're down for leaving the house tomorrow night but want to keep things low-key, plan a trip to the Cameco Meewasin Skating Rink in Kiwanis Memorial Park next to the Delta Bessborough. Admission is free and skates can be borrowed at no charge. The rink is open on New Year's Eve until 1am. 

Tobogganing

The weather is supposed to warm up for tomorrow, so if you like the outdoor activity idea, why not ring in the new year with some tobogganing? Suit up in your winter duds, dig out your flying saucer or crazy carpet and welcome 2015 while sailing down the hill at Diefenbaker Park

Kid-Friendly

Family traditions don't need to be elaborate in order to be memorable! Small children may need a break from the excitement of Christmas festivities and visitors. Make the evening low-key but special with a PJ party and hot cocoa. Camp out in the living room to enjoy a movie together or read stories by the fire.

Contemplative

If you prefer to spend New Year's Eve reflecting on the past year and setting intentions for the new, here are a few questions to get the contemplative juices flowing. Another way to reflect is to simply consider the positive events of the past year. Write down your "Greatest Hits" of 2014- moments of happiness, success, and fun. The same can be done with kids!

Cooking Party

Have a few close friends over to cook together. There are a ton of different ways of doing this and you can get really creative. It might be fun to select the menu based around a theme, style of cuisine, or wine pairings.

Out on the Town

If you decide to head out on the town, there are a ton of local hotspots with great food and cocktails for your New Year's Eve enjoyment. Local bloggers Our Collective Muse recently posted an awesome NYE guide, including a big giveaway! Head over to Our Collective Muse to check out the hottest in New Year's Eve style, trending music, and local restaurant recommendations. 

No matter the NYE activity you choose, remember to plan a safe ride home. Saskatoon Transit and SGI have partnered to provide free bus service on New Year's Eve from 8pm to 2:45am. Customers will be able to flag down their bus from the curb at any point along the route- not just at specified stops. How great is that!?

Whatever it is you end up doing tomorrow, have a fantastic last day of 2014!
