Fireworks and Torchlight ParadeWhat’s a New Year’s Eve without some fireworks and a parade? Join everybody at the ski beach at Purgatory Resort as the ski patrollers and instructors make their way down the mountain with torchlights to light things up. Following the Torchlight Parade will be a fireworks show to kick off the New Year. What more could one want for an evening of celebration?

College Drive, animascitytheatre.comHoliday happy hourIf you’ve been avoiding that whole yoga class thing, perhaps you should start back up again at Ska Brewing this Monday. It is, after all, Happy Hour Yoga, which means you’ll put in the work during one hour of yoga, and then put in the play with a pint of Ska beer when you’re done. Just think of it as a beer incentive for the stretching torture.
