Large numbers on hand to usher in Cupids 400

December 31, 2009

Enthusiastic revelers were on hand New Years Eve to help kick off what will be a full year of celebrations commemorating Cupids 400. Organizers were pleased with the strong community and regional turnout, as people came from communities throughout the Northeast Avalon, drawn by the promise of a good time, live music, family celebrations and spectacular fireworks. With a well planned and efficient shuttle service in place, the event suffered none of the potential traffic snarls and congestion.

A special family celebration began the evening with entertainment that included kid friendly activities and performances, free treats and a special fireworks display. The adult portion of the evening’s festivities was highlighted by live entertainment, hot food, heated tents to take shelter from the crisp night, capped by a dazzling 18-minute fireworks display at the stroke of midnight.
