What’s Happening:

  • Hallelujah! Bainbridge Chorale will lead a “Messiah Sing-along” tonight from 7-9 p.m. at Rolling Bay Presbyterian Church. All are welcome to sing or listen. The chorale has some scores to share but extras are appreciated. The cost is $10.
  • There are a couple of age-appropriate options for New Year’s Eve revelry on Bainbridge Monday. KiDiMu takes a preemptive approach to the holiday with its annual Noon Year’s Eve for youngsters. The museum will hold a special craft time from 10-11:30 a.m., followed by a countdown to noon and a balloon drop. For those 21 and older, Bainbridge Performing Arts will host a New Years Eve party featuring Seattle DJ Dubreezy. The bar will be stocked with island-brewed beer and spirits, and non-alcoholic drinks will be half-priced for designated drivers. The party starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15.
