From holiday shopping to ice skating to New Year’s Eve festivities, MarketStreet Lynnfield is the best place to celebrate the season in December. The outdoor shopping destination announces that its beloved New Year’s Eve Family Block Party will return – this year as a 60s theme party that invites the entire family to groove into the New Year. Packed with music, entertainment and giveaways, the MarketStreet New Year’s Eve Family Block Party is free and open to the public. It will be held directly outside the MarketStreet Rink on Dec. 31 from 5-7 p.m. Giving families a way to enjoy a Christmas Break outdoors, the rink will also offer extended hours.
“Between our shops, restaurants, skating rink and New Year’s Eve Family Block Party, MarketStreet Lynnfield could not be a better place to find that holiday cheer and to spend the last weeks of 2018,” said General Manager Lauren Taylor. “We are so proud to give families the opportunity to celebrate the season together and to host events that bring the North Shore community together.”
The MarketStreet New Year’s Eve Family Block Party is one of the North Shore’s most popular events. To create a 60s theme, MarketStreet will bring a VW photo bus to the property, DJ Rick DeSanctis will spin the beats and mystical performers will entertain. Capping off the festivities, MarketStreet will countdown to 7 p.m. and shower crowds with a colorful burst of 50 pounds of confetti. Those dressed in costume will be entered to win a MarketStreet prize.
The MarketStreet rink, which is sponsored by Lahey Health, is better than ever this year thanks to a new Warming Tent that houses skate rentals and ensures skaters and spectators stay toasty in even the chilliest of weather. During Christmas Break, The rink will offer the following extended hours to keep the whole family entertained: Dec. 24 from 11 a.m.-8 p.m., Dec. 24 from 11 a.m.-6 p.m., closed on Dec. 25, Dec. 26-27 from 10 a.m.-9 p.m., Dec. 28-29 from 10 a.m.-10 p.m., Dec. 30-31 from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Jan. 1 from 10 a.m.-9 p.m.
