4x JUNO Award Nominee and 3x Parents’ Choice Award winner, Chris McKhool- New Year’s Eve Party!
December 31, 2020 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM ESTFree
New Year’s Eve 2020 is bound to look a little different this year. As parents watch the cases of Covid-19 continue to rise, many are trying to figure out how to carry on traditions while keeping their children safe. In many parts of Canada, where cases numbers continue to rise, politicians and doctors are saying to stay home to keep the virus under control.
Enter Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Recipient and JUNO Award nominee Chris McKhool with an idea: free ZOOM show where children can sing some songs, have a dance party, do some crazy science experiments, give away prizes, and have their own early Kids Countdown!
“I love New Years Eve, and I wanted to do something nice for all the families struggling with what to do with their kids. I wanted to find a fun and safe way for me, my wife, and 9 year old daughter to celebrate First Night with her friends and neighbours,” says McKhool. “The idea grew from there and now we are extending the invitation across the country for families to join with us.
Community-minded Chris McKhool is hailed as a “Children’s musical star” (National Post) and “Canada’s greatest eco-troubadour for young people.” (Mississauga Living Arts Centre) Chris has been delighting audiences with infectious songs and exotic world instruments for over two decades, reaching over 1 million children live in concert. All of Chris’ shows feature original songs from his appearances on Mr. Dressup, YTV’s Treehouse, TVOntario’s Crawlspace and live CBC Television and Radio.
Link becomes live at 6:40 pm to get settled and hang out. The show begins at 7:00 pm EST. And make sure you have speakers plugged in if you have them!
Tickets are FREE but you need to reserve them!
