Kick off the New Year in Depot Park with two days of music, food, fun, sweet treats, and chalk art!Jan. 1st will feature two stages in the park; one stage at the base of the hill will feature a kid’s sing-along with an LED screen displaying a ‘follow the bouncing ball’ style sing-along, a live DJ and snow machines! The second stage in the open lawn will feature an adult karaoke stage with an LED screen display along with a secondary live DJ stage. Music ends at 5pm. Social circles will be painted across both the hill and open lawn to encourage social distancing by all.

Jan 2nd music will hosted by Depot Park Ambassadors.
The music begins at 12p both days, food trucks and sweet treat vendors will be onsite all day and into the evening when the holiday lights will continue to make Depot Park sparkle!
Plus, we will have chalk art and sanitizing stations setup along the water’s edge promenade both days for guests to choose a square on the sidewalk and use chalk to share drawings or artistic messages of what brings them joy. By sharing positive uplifting images and messages, we can brighten each other’s day and help to start the New Year off right.

For the health and safety of our neighbors and in response to the rising COVID-19 case numbers and hospitalizations, the city will replace this year’s Sparks in the Park event with this free, family-friendly activity to allow neighbors the opportunity to celebrate the new year safely.
