New Year's Eve In the Fort promises to be extraordinary.
The volunteer-run event at the Historic Precinct is in its second year and just received a $5000 donation from Straightline Chrysler to purchase fireworks.
"Lots of people reached out and asked if we were doing fireworks this year," said Kathy Stevenson, chair of New Year's Eve In the Fort. "So this year we thought we would listen to the people and give them what they want."
Other events during the evening will include horse and wagon or sleigh rides, cookie decorating, crafts, treats, a photo booth, a hockey shootout and games.
"To see the enjoyment of the community and the people, seeing that they can get out and enjoy something that we can help support is the reason we donate," said Clark Hamilton, general manager of Straightline Chrysler.
Last year, the event saw roughly 750 people, this year  they expect at least double.
