The city of Brampton has officially released the details for the New Year's Eve concert. Fireworks will be at 9PM followed by local performances, Johnathan Gallivan, David Usher, and finally OLP. The night will end with a countdown and light show atop the Rose Theatre.

This will be an outdoor concert, so dress warm. There will be some sort of wristband requirement for viewing the main stage...I will post more details on that as I find out about them.
