Fireworks burst over Sunday River so everything has a glow.  Sunday River Resort

BETHEL — Celebrate this New Year’s Eve in style at Sunday River Resort, Slopeside at South Ride, at 8 p.m. for fireworks and fire dancers.

There will be two fire performers who twirl fire. They will be doing two performances before the fireworks show.

Admission is free.

Afterward, there will be a kids New Year’s Eve party, followed by a New Year’s Eve party held at the Foggy Goggle from 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. There will be live music by CC and Friends, a jam rock band covering bands such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Phish, The Allman Brothers, Tom Petty, Grateful Dead, and many more. The band includes Chris Chasse on bass, Kevin Roper on keys, Tom Faunce on guitar, and Cameron Gray on drums.

“New Year’s Eve at Sunday River always has a little something for everyone. Our fireworks show, extended twilight skiing, and more are earlier in the evening to provide a fun activity for families, and our late-night party at the Foggy Goggle features live music and a countdown to midnight in true holiday fashion,” said Karolyn Castaldo, director of communications at Sunday River.

For family fun, don’t forget about the early festivities, such as visits with Eddy and Betty, the yetis at Slopeside at South Ridge at 11:30 a.m.

According to local lore, the yeti lived on Old Speck Mountain near Sunday River. He’d been living there since the 1950s, right when Sunday River opened its trails for skiing. However, the yeti can only be spotted now and again. (His name? His friends found it endearing to call him, ‘Eddy.’) His friend, Betty, from near the Mahoosuc Mountains, fell in love with skiing and the mountains and never left.

The word is that every Saturday at 11:30 a.m., starting in December, Eddy can be spotted around South Ridge Lodge and slopeside at SnowSports School.
