WEEKEND WATCH: New Year’s at Noon
Don’t let the name fool you – the party starts earlier than advertised Friday morning at the Fargo Theatre, 314 Broadway. For a family-friendly festivity, the organization rings in the new year at noon, but the party starts at 9:30 a.m. with Lance Johnson playing the Mighty Wurlitzer organ, followed by a 10 a.m. screening of the animated film “Happy Feet,” pictured. At 11:55 a.m. host Doug Hamilton starts a countdown, followed by ringing in the new year with a performance by the FM Kicks Big Band. Things wind up at 1 p.m. with a second screening of “Happy Feet.” Tickets are $5. (701) 239-8385.
