The City of Whitehorse is organizing an activity-filled evening at the Canada Games Centre on Dec. 31 as the clock counts down the hours to 2015.

Family First Night is a free event taking place from 5 to 8 p.m. featuring themed activities, crafts, live music, swimming and skating. Snacks and refreshments will also be provided.

A fireworks finale is scheduled to follow at 8 p.m., weather permitting.

They will be launched from the Takhini Arena, which will be closed to the public.

Parking at the Canada Games Centre will be limited, so city officials are recommending that people either use public transit or carpool.

Vehicles should not be parked on the shoulder, at intersections or on roadways as that may block access to emergency vehicles, city officials stated in a news release on Dec. 21.
