What's On This Weekend: December 29-31
Was it just us, or did the last 12 months flip by at hummingbird-wing speed? It's crazy to be staring 2018 in the face, but here we are. How do you celebrate the New Year? Does your family have any traditions?
There are lots of early celebrations around to enjoy if your little ones can't stay up till midnight, or if you prefer to ring in the new year at home, some sparkling cider, balloons and a YouTube'd ball drop are all you need for a party.
New Year's Day is the perfect time to take a winter hike at a state park or connect with nature another way. It's a beautiful, bright new beginning, so get out and enjoy it.
Happy 2018, friends!
