BRATTLEBORO — The Last Night Committee will present a fun-filled and substance-free day of celebration for all ages on New Year's Eve, Thursday, Dec. 31.
Organizers say that this year's theme is “Vermont Households Only.”
“Please recreate as a family (same household) to keep our community safe,” they said in a news release.
“With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we have scaled back our activities and postponed a number of our usual events for this year out of an abundance of caution. COVID-19 protocols, such as masks and social distancing, will be required at all events.”
This year, the day kicks off with free snowshoeing and cross-country skiing at the Brattleboro Outing Club from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bring your own equipment and enjoy the trails on your own, or with your own household members.
Vermont households may skate at Living Memorial Park from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., by private rental only. Fifty minutes of ice skating is available for $50 per household. To reserve your spot. visit tinyurl.com/skatinglastnight.
Bring your skis and snowboards to Living Memorial Park from 5 to 9 p.m. to enjoy the fresh snow and cool winter air under the lights for $5 per person.

After the concert, households can watch the fireworks display at 9:30 p.m. over the Retreat Meadows this year.
“There should be no congregating at any private or public location,” Last Night organizers underscored. “If you are in a vehicle, you should only be with people who live in your household.”
