Harmony to mark New Year early
HARMONY — Harmony’s annual New Year’s Eve and German heritage celebration, Silvester, will start at 3:30 p.m. Monday with the countdown into the New Year kicking off around 6 p.m. — or, midnight in Germany.
By celebrating the beginning of the New Year at the same time as people in Germany, which is six hours ahead of Harmony, families can have the fun of ringing in a new year without “blowing past bedtimes.”
Most of the festivities wrap up by 6:30 p.m. or 7 p.m., Altemus said.
Attractions at this event include a tour of Harmony Museum, “Bleigiessen” (which predicts what the new year will bring with melted lead), a Christmas tree toss and a wreath toss for the children, face painting and shopping.
