Country-music fans can ring in the new year in Market Place, Blenheim, with a Country Music extravaganza from 8pm to midnight on Monday.
Entertainment includes Richard McCallum, Matt McNeilly, Ange Cook, Amelia Richards and Laura Lowe with the Big Iron Country show band.
Or perhaps the whole family would enjoy a picnic on the Picton foreshore at Ignite 2012.
That's where you can rock the new year in with the Chilli Dogs and other top Marlborough bands from 8pm to midnight, topped off with a spectacular display of fireworks.
Both events are free.
