Navigators to head up St. John's New Year's Eve bash at Quidi Vidi Lake
Fireworks return to shores of Quidi Vidi this year, beginning at midnight
The City of St. John's has announced plans for an all-ages, family-friendly New Year's Eve event at Quidi Vidi Lake, next to the boathouse.
Live music from traditional Newfoundland band The Navigators will begin at 10 p.m. and then fireworks will light up the sky at midnight.
In a release sent Thursday, Jamie Korab, councillor for Ward 3, said he hopes people will bundle up and head on down to the lake, noting that St. John's is one of the first cities in the country to welcome 2018.
Accessible parking will be available in the parking lot of the Dominion grocery store on Lake Avenue.
If the weather doesn't co-operate, the event will be moved to Jan 1, with music from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and fireworks beginning after the concert.
