“This will be an exciting, fun way to celebrate New Year’s Eve, so be sure to grab your friends, come on out and enjoy an entertaining night at the Opera House,” Cheryl Sherry, Fort director, said.

During the evening, guests can enjoy great dance music, a full bar, and a late night light food menu.

This New Year’s event is for guests 21 and over.

The event’s co-host is MOJO Productions, a full-service live Entertainment Company that provides favorite dance tunes from Big Band to swing and even today’s hits.

Guests will also receive a party favor and a champagne toast, which will be included in their admission.

Tickets are $10 per person and $15 per couple. Advanced tickets are available for the Gala by calling 573-4321.

When purchasing eight to 10 tickets at once, guests can reserve a table for an additional fee of $20, Sherry said.

“Reserving a table will ensure you will get to sit with your family or friends during the New Year’s Eve Gala.”

The Fort Museum New Year’s Eve Gala will be held on Dec. 31 from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.
