Ringing in the New Year in Jackson
If you’re like millions of other people all over the world, you’re looking for something fun to do to on New Year’s Eve. Whether your idea of fun is to go out to a big party or to spend a quiet night at home with your family or just a couple of friends, there are lots of ways you can have fun on New Year’s Eve.
As a resident of HomeFirst™’s Walnut Ridge or English Meadows manufactured housing communities, you’ll have lots of ways to ring in the new year in style right in your neighborhood. These communities are located in Jackson, MI, where lots of community events happen all year long and New Year’s Eve is no exception.
Every year, downtown Jackson is home to the annual Eve on the Ave event. Eve on the Ave is a spectacular New Year’s Eve event that lets you experience a Times Square-style celebration, but without the hassle of having to travel or deal with the massive crowds. The festivities get started around 10:00 PM, but feel free to come on out earlier and have dinner or visit some of the shops in downtown Jackson. Many restaurants and other businesses in the area will have New Year’s Eve specials and other events going on that night. This is a family-friendly event, so feel free to bring the kids! There will be lots of fun activities for the kids to do.
If you start getting cold during your night out, you can stop by a heated tent to warm up with some hot chocolate. But once it gets closer to midnight, you’ll want to head back out where you can join in the countdown and watch the ball drop. At the stroke of midnight, Eve on the Ave attendees will be treated to a spectacular fireworks display! You won’t want to miss this!
Do you love putting on your running shoes and going for a run? You can join in the Eve on the Ave 5K run/walk! The race kicks off at St. John’s UCC at Mechanic and Biddle and will bring you through the festivities in downtown Jackson. Once you’re done, snacks and refreshments will be waiting for you. Prizes are awarded to the top 3 male and female runners in many age groups, ranging from 18 to over 60.
Of course, you don’t even have to leave your community to find excitement on New Year’s Eve. Your manufactured home is the perfect place to invite your friends and family over for a fun night in! Whether you’re just inviting a couple of people over or want to reserve the community clubhouse for a larger gathering, your HomeFirst™ community is the perfect place to celebrate the beginning of a brand new year!
