Skating & food trucks on offer at City’s New Year’s Eve party

BT Toronto | posted Thursday, Dec 12th, 2013


City will once again be hosting its annual New Year’s Eve party at Nathan Phillips Square, with a slight twist on years past.

The party will run from 8 p.m. to midnight on Dec. 31, the 29th year City has celebrated in the square.

There will be skating, food trucks, musical performances from KiSS 92.5 DJ Clymaxxx, R&B band Fathead and funk band God Made Me Funky, and of course, a spectacular fireworks show to ring in 2014.

New this year is a curling demonstration.

Hosts from City and Sportsnet will emcee live events and host coverage from the square, while on City, viewers can watch Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2014.

CityNews Tonight will carry live coverage of festivities from the square at 11 p.m. in a special national news edition.

New Year’s Rockin’ Eve is a six-hour television marathon beginning at 8 p.m. on Dec. 31 and running until 2 a.m. on City and Citytv.com. The show will begin with a two-hour countdown looking at the 30 greatest female artists in music, and continues with performances from Los Angeles and Times Square in New York City.

Rogers Media is the parent company of City, Breakfast Television, and this website.

What are you doing for New Year’s Eve? Let us know in the comments.

    I have been attending NYE celebrations at Nathan Phillips Square for more then a decade and I would have to say that the 2014 celebration was one of the worst. There were only two bands (?) followed by a DJ. Their music wasn’t very good. If you cannot appeal to all generations in attendance then its time to give it up and let some other company sponsor the event.

    My daughter and I have been going to Nathan Philip Square for the past 3 years and will be attending again this year,of course to ring in the new year but to also celebrate my daughters 10th birthday…..we are sooooo excited, can’t wait to see the citytv crew again!!!
