Ring in the New Year, Ottawa Style!

Looking for something fun and exciting to do on New Year’s Eve? Sparks Street Village and Ottawa City Hall are hosting outdoor events and admission is free to both of them!

At the Sparks Street Village, an open-air pedestrian mall one block south of Parliament Hill, the celebration starts at 8:00 pm on December 31 with food and drink on the street, amazing prizes, live music, DJs, and a Maple Leaf Drop and firework show at midnight. Also, don’t miss out on this year’s headliner artist, K-OS! Make sure to follow new announcements on the event’s Facebook page.

Meanwhile, over at the nearby Ottawa City Hall, the Scottish Society of Ottawa invites you to welcome 2014 Scottish-style with a New Year’s Eve Hogmanay party that aims to replicate the excitement of Edinburgh’s world famous Royal Mile as the clock strikes midnight and we enter the New Year. This family-friendly shindig will feature a mix of traditional and contemporary Scottish music, Highland dancing, Scotch tasting sessions, enlivened by Scottish food and drink and a fireworks display at midnight.

If you are looking to spend the night indoors instead, there are many great places to have a delicious NYE meal, sip champagne and dance the night away. Here are just a few suggestions in the Ottawa region:
