New Year's Eve, Family Style

Posted By on Sat, Dec 28, 2013 at 9:00 AM

No wild plans for ringing in the new year? Have no fear. First Night events in Burlington and St. Johnsbury provide hours of fun for the whole family. These celebrations — featuring everything from dancing dragons and clever clowning in the Queen City to sky lanterns and belly dancers in St. J — are sure to toot the noisemakers of young and old alike. And for the grown-ups, there’s an added perk: no nasty champagne hangover the morning after.
