Skate your way into new year in Modesto
Placeholder Image

There’s something for people of all ages to do in Modesto to ring in 2018 on New Year’s Eve.

How about ice skating?

From 10 p.m. to noon., Modesto on Ice at 11th and K streets might be the coolest place (pun intended) in the 209 to spend New Year’s Eve.

This experience on ice in the Centre Plaza parking lot comes complete with a balloon drop, complimentary cider for the midnight toast, music and games.
