Visit Eau Claire is excited to announce the inaugural Light Up Eau Claire, presented by Royal Credit Union. The event will begin at 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 31 in downtown Eau Claire and end on Sunday, January 1 around 1:30 a.m. Much of the event is free and open to the public. Light Up Eau Claire is a project of the Visit Eau Claire Cultural Tourism Committee, which strives to link residents’ “Quality of Life” with visitors’ “Quality of Experience”.
The event will feature activities for families and kids such as the Little Lantern Parade and the We-Bop Family Jazz Party at the Children’s Museum of Eau Claire. Originating from NYC’s Lincoln Center, this WeBop Family Jazz Party will feature the talents of local musicians Tim Sullivan, Jeremy Boettcher, Sean Carey and Josh Gallagher. Adults will also find festivities throughout the night that will brighten up the city, as well as their souls, including live music throughout the participating downtown venues. This New Year’s Eve will go down in history!
