Ringing in 2007 around the area

What year is it? Midnight on December 31 rings in 2007. But other calendars tell time differently. The year 5767 began for Jews on October 3. Muslims will commemorate Hijrah New Year 1427 on January 31. The Chinese Year of the Pig, 4705, snuffles in on February 18. And among Sikhs, March 14 marks the start of the year 539 in the Nanakshahi Era. However you count your days, family-friendly First Nights offer something for just about everyone. Buy a button, pin it on, and take in your choice among a diversity of booze-free events.

Burlington has the most comprehensive program, with 12 hours of activities ranging from a trapeze show, magic acts and swing dancing to life-sized reproductions of masterpiece paintings that photo seekers can stand behind. Music lovers lend an ear to the prog-metal masters of Inertia, the a cappella group In Accord, the Americana-savvy Sky Blue Boys, blues diva Tammy Fletcher and assorted youth bands formed by next year's rock stars. Word wranglers warm up with the "Poetica haha!" poetry circus and a performance-poetry slam, then catch a lift at readings by cabbie columnist Jernigan Pontiac and occult folk historian Joe Citro. Sparks fly above Waterfront Park during two fireworks shows at 7 p.m. and midnight, and they're visible from any spot with a view of Lake Champlain.

In Montpelier and Rutland, the action gets underway at 3 and 5 p.m., respectively. Capital City celebrants can learn the score from the Green Mountain Youth Symphony, the Vermont Philharmonic and the Vermont Fiddle Orchestra, or put some dance in their pants with the Nisht Geferlach Klezmer Band and the Kitchen Sync Cloggers. Hot lasagna and chili suppers serve up stamina for watching the 8 p.m. parade and early-bird fireworks. Revelers up for a few more hours' fun round out the evening by busting moves to the Dave Keller Band 'til 2007 officially arrives.

Rutland merrymakers might start out with ice skating, then move on to impersonations of bygone British authors, do some dancing or take in a concert in their choice of musical genre. Parents with little ones can opt for the 8 o'clock fireworks - right after the Noise Parade - while traditionalists can stay out 'til 12.

Here's to a happy 2007!
