‘Last Night’ New Year’s Eve celebration returns

Are you ready for a last night of revelry? Come to Blue Hill for music, dance, poetry, food and more on December 31, where a night of festivities begins at 6 p.m.

Performers, being recruited now, already include Noel Paul Stookey, George Emlin, Maine Weather, Brooklin Band, Planet Pan, Rob McCall and others, according to a release.

Since 2005, New Year’s Eve has seen hundreds celebrants who have dozens of choices of music, theater, dance, poetry, kids crafts and Tarot predictions for the New Year.

It’s all free, including the hot chocolate and cookies in the fire station.

Peninsula Pan, the non-profit organization that plans Last Night, is looking for returning or new performers who would like to join the array of creative and exceptional musicians, storytellers, poets, and performance artists as part of the celebration.

Volunteers are also needed to be present at the downtown venues during the performances. Duties are minimal and are fun when shared with a friend.
