Ring in the New Year with friends, family, music, food, and fun at Island Rec’s annual Community New Year’s Eve Celebration.

This year the festivities have been relocated to the new Brickworks Building, but Island Rec and company are bringing along some of their favorite New Year's Eve activities, including the ever-popular hat-decorating station and photo booth.

Adults and kids alike can enter games and contests for a chance to win one of many fabulous door prizes donated by local businesses. Partygoers can also look forward to special presentations by the Island Chordsmen and Spring Street International School’s “Rock Solid” youth group.

Doors open at 7 p.m.

The New Year's Eve countdown will coincide with Eastern Standard Time, so partygoers will watch the ball drop in Times Square at 9 p.m. The celebration is an all-age event, but children under 13 need to be accompanied by an adult.  Please bring a sweet or savory snack to share in potluck style!

A family friendly, alcohol-free event, the Community Celebration is co-sponsored by Island Rec and the San Juan Island Prevention Coalition.
