First Night Alexandria
THE BEST FAMILY FRIENDLY NEW YEAR’S EVE PARTY IN THE DC AREA!
First Night Alexandria 2014 is a celebration of the new year through the performing arts. Coffee shops, retail stores, hotels, museums and public buildings are turned into performance venues to showcase incredible local and regional talent. Recent performers at First Night Alexandria include clowns, face painters and magicians for children to a world-class Scottish fiddler, a Grammy-nominated rock and roll guitarist and a classical cellist for adults.
For a small fee for adults (children 12 and under are free), you have access to all the entertainment - more than 100 performances, all evening! Everything is within easy walking distances. And we celebrate the dawning of a new year at midnight with a spectacular fireworks display on the Potomac River at the foot of King Street.
