Youngsters’ day of enjoyment
Hamilton Children’s Museum has really stepped it up this year. Just ask your Ancaster movers, and they’ll surely agree. You can take your offspring for a visit to all three galleries.

Don’t walk, rather run into the New Year’s beginning
This event is for those individuals ready to step out of the norm. ‘How so?’, Oakville movers or even some of you might ask. Well, not many people are ready to welcome the New Year while running in the cold, all with a cool breeze caressing their cheeks. However, having that this is the 34th Annual Resolution Run, a number of people seem to be ready for such an endeavor. All jokes aside, it is a great way to celebrate the New Year in Hamilton by starting this chapter on the right foot and setting some good habits. This 5k walk/run comes with post-event refreshments, as well as a Resolution Run jacket.
A costumed mystery dinner
Murder Mystery Dinner sounds fun without us elaborating any further. We will, none the less. Vivene’s Island Cusine has put some thought into making this party one of the best ways to celebrate the New Year in Hamilton. All you need to do is pay the $55 fee, and come dressed as one of the characters from Pirates of the Caribbean. Pirate or islander, doesn’t matter much. What’s important is that everyone enjoys their time. The evening will begin with a glass of wine, followed by an appetizer. Main dish, dessert, and coffee or tea are in store next. Finally, what is a New Year’s Eve without a glass of champagne? It’s also worth noting that a winner of the murder mystery will be awarded a cash prize of $100.
