Sarnia Celebrates Centenary New Year
New Year's 2014 was extra special in Sarnia this year as the small southwest Ontario city marked it's hundredth year.
The city put on music, alcohol and opened up the downtown mall as a "warming station": with thousands of Sarnians braving -20c temperatures to ring in the New Year.
Blackburn News reported, the area had a "New York City" feel to it, complete with a ball drop. Luckily, Coffee Republic on Front St, remained open until the late hours, providing the crowd with hot drinks into the night.
