Family Events To Usher In The New Year

Come welcome the New Year with family, friends, and neighbors. An exciting new tradition comes to New Rochelle with a First Night celebration scheduled for the afternoon and evening of December 31st. At multiple locations in and around downtown New Rochelle, individuals and families can enjoy a great number of presentations and events, ranging from magic shows, to art exhibits, to mask-making, to story-telling, to musical performances, as well as a celebratory procession along Main Street. A full schedule of events and venues is HERE. To participate in the revelry, individuals or families must purchase buttons for $8 a piece, with discounts available for seniors and youngsters. Buttons can be obtained at various locations, shown HERE, either prior to or at First Night itself. First Night is sponsored and organized by the New Rochelle YMCA, which deserves great credit for spearheading such an exciting initiative.
