Community Health Center Unveils City's New Year's Eve Fest

SteveSongs, taico drummers and Trevor the Games Man performed a sample of what families can expect at Middnight on Main 2012.

The Community Health Center introduced Middletown's first New Year's Eve celebration Thursday — Middnight on Main 2012 — at the Church of the Holy Trinity lawn, with a Japanese drumming performance, a PBS Kids star SteveSongs concert, Trevor the Games Man and a ceremonial ringing of the church bells.

The festival will span Middletown's Main Street with family-friendly, alcohol-free cultural and arts performances on Dec. 31 from 3 p.m. to midnight, including fireworks, taiko percussion with the world-reknowned ensemble KODO, the folk, rock, jazz band Barefoot Truth of Mystic, magician Johnny Fox, and Wesleyan University graduate and nationally known children's musician Steve Roslonek.

The purchase of a special button will allow entrance to other events — all within walking distance — such as stories, workshops, dance, crafts, cookery and film at venues including the MAC 650 Art Space, the Green Street Arts Center, Vinnie's Jump and Jive, KidCity, Middletown Roller Rink and the Buttonwood Tree.

More than 100 volunteers are sought to help with the event. For information, see Middnight on Main 2012.

I think it is a very good idea. I hope it will not be to cold and not snowing. I also think this is the first time Middletown has done somthing like this at night. GOOD JOB! CLAYTON BURKHART
