LA GRANDE, Ore. – La Grande Main Street Downtown (LGMSD) is helping to organize and host an inaugural New Year’s Eve Block Party and Ball Drop to say farewell to 2014 and usher in 2015.
Family-friendly festivities on Wednesday, Dec. 31 will be held at the corner of Depot St. and Adams Ave. beginning around 9:30 p.m. and continuing until around 12:30 a.m. with a 4.5-foot lighted ball being dropped from the Phoenix building at midnight to celebrate the New Year.
Eastern Oregon University’s radio station, 91.7 FM KEOL, will have student and community DJs providing music and a live broadcast of the event.
“This is a great opportunity for KEOL to give back to the community,” said station manager Courtney Millsap. “It is also a great chance for students who are in town to get out and see what the community can offer them.”
Song requests will be taken from a selection of vinyl records and CDs and partygoers will also have the opportunity to share their New Year’s resolutions on the air.
“We are excited to have KEOL on board for what promises to be a very successful event for years to come,” said Ashley O’Toole, a volunteer organizer of the event. “The La Grande Main Street Downtown organization is always looking for ways to better connect our downtown with campus life, and we hope to see a lot of EOU students on New Year’s.”
John J. Howard & Associates is sponsoring a “warming tent” with hot chocolate and party favors. LGMSD will also oversee burn barrels and outdoor heaters and attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs to enjoy the music and a slideshow highlighting La Grande in 2014.
