Celebrate New Year’s Eve at Uptown Kingston’s New Year’s Eve ʻ1913ʼ Celebration! This neighborhood-wide event will re-imagine the Historic Stockade District as it was 100 years ago. To celebrate the New Year and say goodbye to what has been a very good year for Uptown Kingston, several businesses have united to present a neighborhood-wide celebration themed as if it were a century ago, complete with pre-prohibition style drinks, food, music, and entertainment.
Beginning at 7:00 p.m., Boitsonʼs, Duo Bistro, Stockade Tavern, & BSP Lounge (all within a block of each other) will simultaneously be hosting era-specific festivities and providing gift/discounts to those patrons who are dressed “appropriately” in period outfits. The evening will culminate with the first ever “Ball Drop” at the corner of N. Front and Wall Streets (which will be closed to traffic all evening.) And the events will continue well into the New Year!
