Miss604 Poll: New Years Eve in Vancouver

Comments 7 by Rebecca Bollwitt

I’ve heard from some people that actual New Yorkers don’t ever venture into Times Square, that it’s more of a touristy thing. Regardless, this year they have the usual party in the street, a new LED ball, interactive messages that you can text to the big screens above, and you can even go to this website to get a message printed on a piece of confetti that will fall on revelers.

NYE 2007 Skytrain Party

As for Vancouver… what the heck is going on tonight?

The only site that seems to come up during a “New Years Eve Vancouver” search is Club Zone, where you can choose which 19 year olds you want to hang out with, the ones in white miniskirts at Caprice or the ones in mini jean skirts at The Roxy.

For an alternative, the City of Vancouver didn’t really come up with any more options like a First Night, that used to be held at the Library. Neighbouring cities have family-oriented events (I’ve found some in Surrey and Burnaby so far) but it seems as though Vancouver is content on leaving all the partying to Granville, which will be closed to vehicle traffic tonight. Apparently news outlets are also reporting that people in Metro Vancouver are “too scared” to come downtown due to “gang violence” so they’re just going to stay put at home. Is it really that? Or is it that there are no safe alternatives to our entertainment district?

    Looking for some bubble to pop at midnight?

    Why, I recently wrote a great piece with a couple of suggestions:

    We are probably going to the Y in Surrey for their Family new year’s party (if tix are still available). All kinds of kids activities, babysitting for the little ones and non alcoholic toast at midnight and all for $20/family.

    It seems a lot of people I know are still not sure what they will be doing tonight for New Year’s Eve. I’ll be in the west end with a new friend for a ‘low key’ kind of thing. So we’ll see how that goes.

    Anyone doing the Polar Bear swim on the 1st 😉

    I’ll be working till it’s all over. Can’t vote that option. I’ll be cleaning up the messes that others create.
