REVISED PROGRAMMING FOR NYE CELEBRATION
Considering the extreme cold alert and forecasted frigid temperatures for December 31, the City of Brampton will offer a reduced New Year’s Eve celebration. The health and safety of attendees, performers, volunteers and staff are of great concern and contributed to this decision. Neighbouring municipalities including Toronto and Mississauga have reduced their outdoor programming for New Year’s Eve as well.
The revised schedule for New Year’s Eve is as follows:
7 pm to 11 pm – Children’s Dance Party in City Hall Atrium
7 pm to 11 pm – Children’s Craft in City Hall Conservatory
11 pm to 12 am – Performances by Pryde and The Sheepdogs in Garden Square
12 am – Fireworks in Garden Square
The 9 pm fireworks show has been cancelled.
The Gage Park skating trail will be open all evening.
Four transit warming stations will be available for attendees on Main Street, and the Rose Theatre will also be open.
Downtown Brampton roads will be closed starting at 10 pm, rather than 6 pm, and will reopen at 1 am.
