New Years Eve in the Neighborhood

December 21st, 2011 2 comments

We have something for everyone this New Years Eve, beginning with the annual Not-So-Silent Night Parade, followed by the return of the Sage Comet! Then the party will begin, with live music from four bands: Garrett and Westcott, Rory James and the Majestic, The River Rust and Oddly Even.

For the party, we’re asking for a $5 donation at the door ($10 for families), plus HPIC will have a bar offering wine and local draft beer for a small donation.

Details: (the parade and Sage Comet times may not be exact!)
6:15pm. Assemble in parking lot for parade
(part of the parking lot will be cordoned off for the Sage Comet, and re-opened after the performance. There is lots of street parking, especially a block north of HPIC if there is no more room in the parking lot.)

6:30pm. Not-So-Silent Night Parade

7:00pm. Sage Comet

7:15pm. Doors open for potluck/entry to party

8:00pm. Music begins

12:00pm. Midnight celebration

After midnight. Open jam – bring your voice and an instrument to join in.

When the sky is so dark! From Astronomy Today’s Night Sky Guide:

On December 10, 2011, the Moon will slip completely into Earth’s shadow, viewable for residents in Australia and Asia. Europe and most of Africa will get to see part of the lunar eclipse at Moonrise, while North America can watch some of the eclipse at Moonset.
