The Hurricane Community Center is hosting a free New Year’s Eve event that will provide a family friendly, fun and safe venue for ringing in 2016 in beautiful Hurricane Valley just east of Huntsville.

The fun starts at 9 pm with the reading of “Ode to a Polecat” and other polecat tributes followed by a local bluegrass music jam. Next the musical headliner is Blake Nix, who will be entertaining us with his mellow rock and original compositions. There will be games for the children, a visit by Polly the Polecat and a fundraising raffle. For good luck in the coming year, the Community Center helpers will be whipping up a mess of black-eyed peas, cornbread and misty moonshine punch.

The countdown to midnight starts with our Ms. Pole Cat (ugly) Contest; then at midnight the Pole cat drops with our rendition of Old Lang Sine. The evening culminates with a firework show courtesy of our sponsors.


Hope to see you there!
