New Years’ Eve in Canton

31 Dec


New Year’s Eve can be so touch and go. Everyone wants the night to be epic, the ultimate culmination of all the fun had in 2012. Never wanting to completeing comitt for fear of missing out on something more fun somewhere else, you can end up bouncing around from bar to bar, party to party only to ring in the New Year sitting on “weird friend from high school who’s home for the holidays” couch. Not this year people! There are so many fun things to do in the Canton, Ohio area! Whether you’re a 20 something ready to hit the bars and through back some drinks or 60 something looking for a nice dinner, dancing and simple champagne toast I have done the dirty work and found you some great Canton-only options! I would like to credit the Canton Repository for their list of 28 Ways to Celebrate New Year’s Eve, The North Canton Patch  and The Canton Stark County Convention and Visitors’ Bureau as I’m using some of their suggestions. Hope you find something both fun and safe for this evenings festivites, please see the bottom of the page for alternative ways to get home if you’ve had just a little too much to get behind the wheel. Happy New Years!!!
