Major Changes to Mississauga’s Biggest New Year’s Eve Party Tomorrow

Published December 30, 2017 at 3:42 pm


If you were planning to check out the New Year’s Eve festivities at Celebration Square tomorrow, Sunday December 31, 2017, there have been some major changes to the event schedule that you will want to know about. 

The event has been shortened drastically due to extreme cold weather conditions, the City said in a release this morning — instead of a four-hour event including kid-friendly activities, the event has been shortened to 30 minutes.

Originally, entertainment was set to begin at 8 p.m. Now, some performances have been cut, and the remainder will begin just a half an hour before the big countdown, at 11:30 p.m.

The mainstage will feature a headlining performance from DJ Shaun Frank, who will be performing live with Delaney Jane.

The skating rink will still be open from 8-11:30 p.m., though, so you can still be out and about that night for NYE at Celebration Square! 

The big NYE countdown to 2018 will happen at 11:59 p.m., of course, followed by the much-anticipated fireworks presented by Tim Hortons at midnight. 

The previous, extended schedule included an NYE jr event, a kids countdown, and performances by local talent Wolf Saga, Kiki Rowe, and Honours.

The night’s festivities will still be hosted by’s own Khaled Iwamura and TV personality Scott Willats.

Also, note that you can ride MiWay for free on New Year’s Eve. If you need a ride, you can hop on a bus free of charge from 7:00 p.m. on December 31, 2017 to 4:00 a.m. January 1, 2018.

Be sure to bundle up for the event, Mississauga!
