Nanaimo parks and rec will finish 2017 at warp speed for this year’s New Year’s Eve Finale celebration.
Space Jam, hosted by the City of Nanaimo at Beban Park, is Nanaimo’s biggest annual all-ages, family New Year’s Eve party.
This year’s intergalactic theme borrows from cultures beyond the solar system on the countdown to blast into 2018.
The evening features live entertainment with music by Ian Johnstone and children’s entertainment by the Purple Pirate and Clever Trever the Clown.
The Nanaimo Clippers hockey team will skate and play hockey with party-goers from 6 to 8 p.m.
“We will host two countdowns so kids of all ages will get the opportunity to blast off in the new year,” Ashley Rowe, recreation coordinator, said in a press release.
The first countdown happens at 8 p.m. and the second rings in the New Year at 10 p.m.
Tickets are $10 per person or $32 for a family of five with free admission for children 2 and under.
Tickets can be purchased at Beban Park box office.
