CBRM Recreation Announces New Year’s Day Event
NEW YEAR’S DAY EVENT TO FEATURE A NUMBER OF THE PERFORMANCES FROM CANCELLED CBRMNYE EVENT
The wind may blow hard, but it’s not a knock out punch for the CBRM Recreation Department. Following the cancellation of the CBRMNYE event on New Year’s Eve due to excessive windchill conditions, Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM) Recreation Department announces New Year’s Day with Port Cities to be held at 3pm on January 1st at the Highland Arts Theatre.
The event, which will also feature performance by Howie MacDonald and renowned street performers Bella Magic, Steve Goodtime, and Might Mike, will run approximately three hours and is a free public event. Highland Arts Theatre (The HAT) is the former St. Andrews Church located at 40 Bentinck Street, and has been operating since 2014 as a venue for many concerts, theatrical productions, and more.
“With the amount of excitement CBRMNYE had from our residents, we are excited to still be able to present our headlining performers Port Cities and utilize this incredible venue in the heart of the Sydney Waterfront District,” says CBRM Recreation Program Coordinator Joe Costello. “With Howie MacDonald and the world class street performers joining us, we feel it will capture some of the magic we intended for New Year’s Eve in a more safe and comfortable environment.”
The event is free to the public but is subject to the capacity of the building. Seating is general admission, with doors opening promptly at 3pm.
