Come ring in the New Year at Old Town Hall! The City of Salem and Salem Main Streets are teaming up to throw LAUNCH!, our sixth annual New Year’s Eve party, on Sunday, Dec. 31 from 4 pm to 6 pm at Old Town Hall on Derby Square.
“When we organized LAUNCH! for the first time a few years ago, it was immediately clear that there was a strong community desire to come together on New Year’s Eve,” states Kylie Sullivan, Salem Main Streets’ Executive Director. “Plus, there’s still plenty of time after our early countdown to get to your own party, or catch one of the many other great events happening all over town on New Year’s Eve!”
This event is free to all and family-friendly, with a $5 suggested donation to help support Salem Main Streets’ “Holiday Happenings” initiatives, including Santa’s Arrival at the Hawthorne, the Tree Lighting, and the wreaths and ribbons around the downtown. LAUNCH! is made possible thanks to the City of Salem, our Salem Main Streets volunteers, and the continued involvement of our partners at Creative Collective and the Phoenix School.
Programming will include hat making, face painting, a photo booth, and more! There will be an early countdown just before 6 pm.
4 pm to 6 pm
Free, $5 suggested donation
Countdown at 6 pm
