Jan. 1: New Orleans New Year’s in Santa Rosa

If you don’t get enough revelry in on New Year’s Eve, Santa Rosa’s Ellington Hall has you covered with a New Year’s Day Holiday Masquerade Ball. Local favorites the Dixie Giants will perform their popular blend of New Orleans jazz and Dixieland, with a few saucy renditions of modern pop tunes thrown in for good measure. The evening starts with jitterbug dancing lessons and also boasts a New Orleans–inspired bead contest that rewards you for shaking your thing on the dance floor. The ball gets swinging on Friday, Jan. 1, at Ellington Hall, 3535 Industrial Drive, Ste. B4, Santa Rosa, 7:30pm. $15. 707.545.6150.
