Last Night! 2012, the town’s eighth annual chem-free New Year’s Eve celebration, will feature 30 performers and nine venues throughout the village’s downtown.

Local humorists, poets, crafters and tarot card readers will be there in addition to many different music providers. Music will range from the many steel bands associated with Flash! in the Pans, to do-wop, jazz, songs of nature, bluegrass and more.

The entertainment is free because all the performers donate their time. Refreshments—including pizza, hot chocolate and baked treats—will be available for free at the Blue Hill Fire Station throughout the evening.

Venues begin to open at 6 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and the festivities will take place “snow or stars.”

The festivities are sponsored by Peninsula Pan, Inc., the administration organization of Flash! in the Pans Community Steelband. For more information, see the Coming Events page, the Penobscot Bay Press online calendar, or visit
