Ring in the New Year - Summit City style
Posted on December 17, 2014 at 9:00:41 am by Lauren C.
Are you planning to be in Fort Wayne on New Year's Eve? You're in for a treat. There is plenty to do and see! Here are a few ideas: For party animals: I always enjoy spending New Year's at Club Soda. There is always live entertainment, good company--and of course plenty of drinks. If you're looking to go out but not hit the club, this is a great compromise. For the kids (or kids at heart): Spend the last day of the year learning about science. Fort Wayne's own science museum offers an annual family friendly event: Countdown to Noon. Join them for activities and demonstrations, from 10 am to 2 pm, all centered around New Year's Eve! For sports fans: Fort Wayners go crazy for Komets hockey, and it's easy to see why. There is always more than enough excitement! Join the Jungle and cheer on the home team as they make another run for a championship. Come see Icy D. Eagle and the rest of the Komets when they hit the ice for the 2014/15 season at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. For the romantic types: Looking for a romantic getaway with your beloved? We've got you covered. Did you know Fort Wayne has a bed and breakfast/spa in the heart of downtown? Yes, a couple operates three buildings: the Thomas Snook the Sion Bass House Spa, and the LaSalle house. Each has something different to offer, but we guarantee you'll feel at home in all of them. Insider's Tip: If you stay in the Snook House, ask for the Paris room. It's oh-so-romantic! For the cultured: Join Fort Wayne's Heartland Sings for a New Year's Eve event unlike any other. Heartland's "Swingin' Singin' New Year's Eve," will feature the Heartland jazz vocalists and orchestra. Expect a dynamic, live musical show with dancing, drinks, food and a champagne toast at midnight. General admission tickets are $60 a person and include admission to the show at the Grand Wayne Center from 9 pm-1 am on New Year's Eve, as well as hors d’oeurves throughout the evening, one free drink ticket, and a champagne toast at midnight. Here's to a happy and safe new year!
