New Years Eve in Whistler at Whistler Holiday Inn
New Years Eve is a great time to reflect on the past year, whether you believe in New Years resolutions or not. But in between that, there is a plethora of events for all ages in Whistler. Some cost, but many are free.Given the cost of the wristband is not going to set you back more than $20 for an adult wristband when purchased on the 31st, there is plenty of value to be had for the additional cost of the wristband. Below are the additional five events your wristband gains you access to.
1. Skating at Whistler Olympic Plaza
From 6pm until the clock strikes midnight, you can skate your night away following the lights and running into quirky characters.
2. Whistler Olympic Plaza Warming Hut
If skating for six hours seems a little bit daunting you can head on down to the Plaza where sweets will be chewed in amongst sing-alongs with the family.
3. Millennium Place
Another option, again starting at 6pm is a flash back in time with performances inspired by the Vaudeville genre at Millennium Place. You will see fire spinners, pop-up dancers, circus people and live music that will be drowned out by an epic bubble wrap stomp. At 9pm a balloon drop will occur for the kids before much more entertainment continues on into the night.
4. Whistler Conference Centre Family Time
Your fourth potential option is at the Whistler Conference Centre. More suitable for the younger children, they will have a blast with bouncy castles, games, crafts, performers surrounding an early countdown for the kids at 9pm.
5. Youth Dance
Rounding out your purchase of a wristband could see 13 to 18 year olds having a dance party with dazzling lighting, music videos old and new with great sounds to boot. They will be getting their dance on from 8pm through to Midnight.
