Port Alberni’s Parks and Recreation department has planned a trio of free family events at three different venues to help ring in the new year on Dec. 31.

AV Multiplex — From 5–7 p.m., on-ice games, a family skate and activities. Last year’s event was popular so it’s back.

Echo Pool — From 6–8 p.m., swimming, games, pizza (donated by Boston Pizza) and more.

Glenwood Centre — From 6–9 p.m. families can rollerblade and dance to music, play games, earn prizes and eat snacks.

“Midnight” celebrations take place right before 9 p.m., allowing families to go home and tuck the kids into bed early.

First Night is supported by the Port Alberni Toy Run, which helps fund the event and also provides volunteers at the three venues.
