It’s easy to get caught up in the hype during the holidays — an intoxicating blend of magical wonder and generosity that inspires people to donate money, make donations and create virtual bracelets or wristbands to try and purchase charity experiences.
But outside of the hustle and bustle of the holidays, the often unceremonious appearances of the Northern Lights continue throughout the year, and the wait is over this month.
New Year’s Eve on New Year’s Eve
On Saturday, January 5, The Dominion Theatre in Fredericton, New Brunswick, will play host to the annual NDC New Year’s Eve Party. While they cannot tell CNN Travel the cost, they said it’s expected to be about $45 — about the same price as “cocktails.”
Tickets for the event are sold out, but the Dominion Theatre did invite CNN Travel to a preview party on Thursday. Arriving to find colorful lights along the sidewalks, the BBC6 entertainment reporter described what people could expect at the event.

An aquarium spokesperson said there will be over 500 lights twinkling around the district. A short, rousing set by a local band and a complimentary tarot card reading were a few of the highlights. Crowds of between 100 and 200 people watched as the NDC New Year’s Eve band prepared to take the stage.
