The Town of Rimbey’s community services department is gearing up for its annual family New Year’s Eve party.

The party, to be held Dec. 31 at the Rimbey arena will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. and will feature free public skating as well as crafts and face painting. There may also be a photo booth set up.

A table with play dough and colouring crafts will be part of the fun for the youngsters.

Hot chocolate will be served and the concession will be open so there will be food available.

Recreation clerk Jossie Krenzler said a similar party was held last New Year’s Eve at the arena and it was quite successful which prompted the community services department to make it an annual event.

“We had a fairly good turnout,” she said. “The party is early enough that it gives the parents an opportunity to attend their own adult party afterwards and also allows the kids to have their own party and have fun.”

About 50 people attended the New Year’s Eve party last year.
