Our 20th anniversary Alcohol-free Family New Year's Eve was the best ever. Thousands enjoyed a free evening of sleigh rides, talent shows, dancers, musicians, magicians, games, bouncy castle and harpists. This Emerald Anniversary of the event was staged with a Wizard of Oz theme. Dorothy, Tin Man, Scarecrow and the legendary Lion greeted residents of all ages as they entered the yellow brick road.
The evening was capped off by CBC "Over The Rainbow" star Stephanie La Rochelle singing "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" leading into our biggest and most spectacular fireworks show ever. The biggest and best fireworks in the city. This is a great anti-impaired driving project that has become an important Nepean and west-Ottawa tradition. But it could not exist without our sponsors and, most importantly, without months of hard work by my family and our volunteers - thanks everyone!
