This New Year’s Eve, Rhode Islanders will celebrate in high style and low key. 

For the theatrically minded, there’s a masquerade ball at the Rhode Island Convention Center, and a Wizard of Oz-themed bash at The Dorrance in Providence.

There’s a band at Chan’s in Woonsocket, and Improv Comedy at the Firehouse Theater in Newport.

And even a New Year’s Eve group meditation session at the Zettmar Studio in Providence.

But some, like North Providence resident Nathan Hatch, will be staying home.
