New Year's Eve plans are still a go in Fort Saskatchewan, with just a few cancelled events.
The second annual New Year's Eve in the Fort gets underway at the Fort Heritage Precinct this Sunday (December 31) at 5:00 p.m., with fireworks at 8:00 p.m.
"Despite the cold weather forecast for New Year's Eve, we're still going forward with the party," said committee chair, Kathy Stevenson.
However, the weather has cancelled golf, the outside dance party and hockey shootouts.
"The rest of the activities, we're moving inside, so you can still come and have a good time," she added.
Activities include hot chocolate, cookie decorating, a photo booth, tattoos, snacks, coffee and sleigh rides.
Stevenson said apparently the horses do not mind the cold, however rides will be shorter.
"I really think this is a community event. It's run by the people in the community, it's supported by people in the community and it's for the people in the community," said Stevenson. "It's a good opportunity to come out and have a safe New Year's Eve party with family and friends."
The Fort Saskatchewan Public Library will host a few of the night's activities as well.
This is a non-alcoholic event and is free to the public.
