Winnipeggers can bid 2012 a fond farewell and say hello to 2013 tonight at The Forks.

A number of New Year’s Eve activities get going at 5 p.m., including crafts for kids in the south aisle of The Forks Market and horse-drawn wagon rides in front of Explore Manitoba.

Live entertainment begins at 6 p.m. on the main stage of The Forks Market. 

At 9:30 p.m., the party continues in the port, with a dance party with DJ Hunnicutt and DJ Coop, followed by fireworks at 10 p.m. by world champion Archangel Fireworks.

Bundle up, though. Environment Canada is calling for a clear, cold night, with the mercury dropping to -25 C. The wind chill makes it feel like it’s -34.

Manitoba Public Insurance and the City of Winnipeg are reminding Winnipeggers to have a safe New Year’s Eve.

The city is providing a Free Ride with Winnipeg Transit that starts at 7 p.m.

The Free Ride is both regular and Handi-Transit service. Final buses will leave downtown at around 1:38 a.m.

For route and schedule information visit winnipegtransit.com or call 311.

This is the second year that MPI has partnered with Winnipeg Transit to provide the free New Year’s Eve service and reduce alcohol-related collisions.
