Party-goers are to arrive in costume and character from their favourite Hollywood flicks, so chances are good they’ll be rubbing elbows with Spiderman, imperial stormtroopers, princesses, the Black Panther and any number of other characters as they walk down the red carpet to find opportunities to dance to their favourite movie soundtracks. There’ll be games, crafts contests, bouncy castles, face panting, chances to win prizes for best costumes, swimming, ice skating and a visit from Aunti Bobbi the Clown.

The evening will feature two countdowns, one at 8 p.m. for partiers with early bedtimes and a second at 10 p.m.

It all happens New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31, 5-10 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person or $32 for a family of five and children 2 and under receive free admission. Tickets are available in advance at the Beban Park box office or at the door the night of the event.
