NYE Vancouver at Robson Square 2013

For a supposed “world class” city we still have no real New Year’s Eve celebration extravaganza. What we do have is a family friendly first night celebration at Robson Square that ends well before midnight. Yep, our city’s premier NYE event culminates before midnight. Great for families with kids, but what about everyone else? I guess many the rest will just gather around the lame television screen at Robson and Granville again.

Robson Square will play host to the fourth annual free family-friendly New Year’s Eve celebration in downtown Vancouver. This year’s festivities will include a magical show for kids, live music, DJs and two free early countdowns with noise makers and party hats – and, of course, free skating.

The rink will be open on New Year’s Eve from 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Celebrations kick off at 4 p.m., with early countdowns just for the kids at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
