Father Time and Baby New Year are scheduled to appear at Strathcona Gardens’ New Year’s Eve Family Celebration on Dec. 31.

“We are very lucky to have Father Time and Baby New Year make an appearance at this year’s event,” says event coordinator Leah Knutson. “They are very busy on New Year’s Eve, but this year they decided to visit our great city for a few hours.”

Other guests include Cathey Corbitt, on hand to paint faces and Jim Chisholm, who will entertain with Shoo Shoo the Clown.

This free event includes swimming, skating, pond hockey, messy challenges, games and crafts from 5 to 9 p.m. on New Year’s Eve at Strathcona Gardens. This is an all ages community event to celebrate the arrival of 2012.
