The holidays pass in a blur of shopping centres, twinkle lights, and holly jolly bearded men; before we know it we’re cleaning up discarded gift wrap and portioning leftover turkey. The holidays are a time to focus on loved ones, but after its all over, why not take a night to celebrate – just for you?

New Years Eve is the perfect excuse to dress up, get out of the house, and let loose after weeks of giving, and the Oceanside area is hosting a plethora of events to choose from to ring in 2019.

For those who love the idea of New Years Eve but are exhausted by the mere thought of staying out past midnight, head out to Nanoose Bay to ring in the new year in Central Standard Time. Celebrate New Year’s Eve Saskatchewan Style is hosted by the Nanaimo Ballroom Dance Society and is slated to run from 8pm to 11pm, with the countdown and a champagne toast scheduled for 10pm. Party-goers can dance the night away to Latin-inspired and contemporary music with DJ Andy Mundy and enjoy a fully licensed bar. Tickets must be purchased in advance and guests are invited to bring a sweet treat for the dessert potluck.

For those who want to celebrate the culmination of 2018 even earlier, Fairwinds Golf Club plans to ring in the new year with New York at 9pm with their New Year 2019 Celebration from New York City. Enjoy pre-dinner appetizers before feasting on roasted striploin, Yorkshire pudding, and all the trimmings, and be sure to save room for dessert! After dinner, usher in 2019 like a true New Yorker with a champagne toast while the ball drops live from Time Square. Doors open at 6pm and reservations are required.

For more traditional party-goers who want to countdown to midnight at midnight, New Years Eve at Smoke N’ Water will not disappoint. Celebrate A Rock n’ Roll New Years Eve with the Seasoned Sinners is a playful mix of traditional and contemporary to satiate all party-going palates. For the full experience, guests can opt for the Dinner and Dance experience and enjoy a mouth-watering three course meal prior to donning their dancing shoes. Eager to go dancing but want to skip the dinner? Smoke N’ Water is offering separate tickets for anyone wanting to forego the food at start the night off with their dancing shoes already on. Dance the night away to the upbeat, swinging blues-like stylings of the Seasoned Sinners and party 2018 away.

Sometimes the temptation to skip the party for a romantic night in is too much to resist. Why not enjoy the best of both worlds? Ring in 2019 with your loved one and all the comforts of home at Sunrise Ridge. Enjoy a luxurious bath in the oversized soaker tub in your suite, and then have a champagne toast for two snuggled up in front of the fireplace. For a truly unforgettable experience, plan a weekend away with our Cozy Coastal Escape and arrive to fresh, fragrant rose petals scattered throughout your suite, artisan hand-dipped chocolate strawberries ready to eat, and champagne on ice for your own private New Year’s celebration.

Time flies when you’re trimming the tree, wrapping the presents, planning Christmas Dinner for all your extended family, and trying to teach the toddler not to eat the tinsel. Take some time for yourself and celebrate New Year’s Eve, your way.
