Grand Forks New Years Eve Celebration

Posted: Updated:

  Despite our severe cold, thousands of northern valley residents are expected at an annual party in Grand Forks.  It's the alcohol free, "Celebrate the Night" New Years Eve celebration at the Alerus Center.

  It's because of brutally cold days like this one, the annual, Grand Forks New Years' celebration moved from it's venues all over downtown….into the Alerus Center in 2009.

Mark Landa, Celebrate the Night: "The main reason was complaints of having to go from building to building out in the cold weather. Night like this… it's a perfect reason for being all under one roof."

  The doors  at the Alerus Center open just before 6 o'clock tonight. Tickets are just $8 at the door. Kids 5 and under get in free.

  Inside , there are all kinds of events for the entire family.

Mark Landa: "We've got a lot of inflatable games, face painting, climbing wall, brought in by the Boy Scouts. Entertainment… we've got a variety of music."

  …Jazz, bluegrass and more, with the Troubadours out of Fargo taking the main stage from 9 to midnight, it's a great, warm place for the entire family to bring in the New Year.

    Again, doors for "Celebrate the Night" event at the Alerus Center open at six o'clock. Tickets are eight-dollars at the door. Kids 5 and under get in free.
