This week, we mark the end of one year and the beginning of another at the stroke of midnight Tuesday night.

What are you planning to do to mark the occasion?

If you want to get your party on, there are a number of ways to do that in Bethlehem Tuesday night. Check out our rundown of New Year's Eve party options.

For families with small children, there is always PeepsFest, which has grown in its five years to include more venues and activities including animals from the Lehigh Valley Zoo and sled dogs from NorthStar Adventure.

The festival at SteelStacks in Bethlehem, which gets under way Monday morning at 10 a.m. will culminate with a party on the Levitt Pavilion lawn Tuesday at 4 p.m. and a fireworks show at 5:15.

Or you could get your college football bowl watching started early Tuesday and see Parkland High School’s own Doak Walker Award winning running back Andre Williams play his last collegiate game. Boston College plays Arizona in the AdvoCare V100 Bowl—formerly the Independence Bowl—in Shreveport, La. At 12:30 p.m. It will be televised live on ESPN.

Here’s what else is going on in South Whitehall Township this week:

  • The Township Zoning Hearing Board is scheduled to meet at 7:30 p.m. Monday in the municipal building on Walbert Avenue. The lead item is the agenda is the Parkland School District’s plans to change the parking lot layout at Kratzer Elementary School.
  • Township municipal offices, as well as pretty much all other local, state and national government offices, will be closed Wednesday in observance of the holiday.
  • Sorry kids, but your winter vacation ends on New Year’s Day. Class in the Parkland School District is scheduled to be back in session Thursday, though the National Weather Service says there is a 50 percent chance of snow that day.
