The Puck Drops Here New Years Eve Celebration

In honor of the Winter Classic on Wednesday, January 1 at Michigan Stadium, downtown Ann Arbor will be celebrating the New Year with “The Puck Drops Here” from 8p-2a on December 31. The event will be held on Main Street.

The Puck will descend a 10′ pole beginning at 11:58.40 hitting the bottom at midnight on January1, 2014. There will be a lighting ceremony and the puck will be raised. I have seen the puck lighting listed at 8p (Convention Bureau), 8:30p (Mlive), and 8:33p (Main Street Area Association).

There will be several food trucks available and many of the local restaurants will be re-opening their outdoor seating with warmers. There will also be a warming tent in the Palio’s parking lot.

Entertainment will include several DJs, a drummer, and Ann Arborite/Voice Star Michelle Chamuel.

While I doubt my daughter would make it until midnight especially with the cold temperatures, I am sure she would enjoy the puck lighting and the activity on Main Street. We love the Main Street events during the spring and summer months.

Ann Arbor with Kids is your go-to source for Ann Arbor Family Fun. It got its start in an activity list that I was compiling for the playgroup I ran at our church. When my daughter started preschool, the other moms were thrilled to hear about my list. I decided to take the list public in 2009.
