Today’s events for Saturday, Dec. 31

Happy New Year! Dec 31 is New Year’s Eve, when we count down to a new year. It’s also Champagne Day, so raise a glass to 2023 at midnight. Cheers!

Gnome alert! Today is your last chance to head to the Pringle Nature Center, located inside Bristol Woods County Park at 800 160th Ave., and take part in its Holiday Gnome Hunt. Find all of the gnomes hiding on the trails for a chance to win a free 2023 PNC family membership. To take part in the contest, post a photo from your gnome hunt on Instagram or Facebook and tag Pringle, or email your photo to Pringle by Dec. 31 to be entered into a prize drawing.
