The Town of Berlin and the Berlin Chamber of Commerce have been working on a new event to mark the end of the year. The town will close off the intersection of Main and Broad Streets for the first annual New Year’s Eve celebration starting this year at 10:30 PM.
The New Year’s Eve celebration will be an extension of the very popular Victorian Christmas and Christmas Parade, and will be host to a street party with hot chocolate, hot cider, music, dancing and a ball drop at midnight, fashioned after New York City’s Times Square celebration.
Horse and carriage rides will be available for a romantic tour of holiday decorations and lights starting at 8:30 PM. Carriage rides through historic Berlin depart from the Atlantic Hotel. Rides are all weather permitting.
While strolling through our tree-lined streets within the Historic Downtown District you will find many quaint shops housed within historic brick buildings with high ceilings and wood floors that are decked in the fanciest holiday gear.
Happy New Year!
