New Years Eve Celebration
Friday, December 13, 2013
By Sarah Leslie
Turning 125 is not being taken lightly here in Paso Robles and this community is ready to celebrate in a big way.
On December 31st, a Gala Fundraising Dinner will set the festivities in motion. Held in the historic Paso Robles Inn Grand Ballroom, this 4–course dinner is complete with ‘step-back-in-time’ décor and entertainment. Those attending will experience a big band and historic dance performances along with a live auction and other surprises.
Just across the street, the New Year’s Eve celebration continues in full force in Downtown City Park where Glow in the Park starts glimmering at 8pm. This free family-fun event will take glow-in-the-dark to a whole new level. We’re talking croquet, bocce ball, hula hoop, horseshoes, 4-square dancing and even bubble blowing – all throughout the park, all aglow in the dark. Admission is free. Parking is free. There will even be a warming zone and therefore no reason to not be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime event.
The community has big plans for this big year. New Year’s Eve is just the kickoff for a year’s worth of 125th Anniversary fun. Look for more fun Anniversary- themed activities throughout 2014, including a Historic Winery Tour, Westside Historic Homes Tour, 12.5-Mile Fun Run, Historic Women’s Day, a Scavenger Hunt for Kids, a Historical Geocaching Tour and so much more.

Sarah Leslie is a marketing guru for Mental Marketing and is also looking forward to her 125th birthday. Everyone knows that drinking Paso Robles wine is an age preservative, right??? Sarah also has been seen behind the bar in Paso Robles tasting rooms such as Clayhouse and Pear Valley. Yup, she will live a long time.
