PLAN YOUR WEEKEND | New Year’s celebrations, basketball, hiking and more – Manhattan Mercury

Time to celebrate another year in and another year out.

Friday is New Year’s Eve, which means the businesses in Aggieville and around the area will be full of party-goers looking to ring in the new year. There are plenty of live music options to listen to while sipping sparkling wines.

Of course, the kids have options, too. Head to Iron Clad Coworking in Wamego around lunchtime or to the Flint Hills Discovery Center in the evening for balloon drops.

As always, make sure to have a plan for getting home safely if you plan to drink.
