Ringing in the New Year with First Night Virginia

Posted: Updated:

First Night Virginia offered thousands in Charlottesville a memorable way to ring in the New Year.   The event kicked off around 3:00 Monday afternoon on the downtown mall and offered a friendly environment for families.

First Night Virginia offered events from game shows to musical performances and even some magic as area organizations teamed up to offer fun activities. The University of Virginia Credit Union and Radio Disney got together to provide families with an interactive game show.

Janine Williams of UVA Credit Union said, "Radio Disney is here to play the ‘Team Green' game show where families compete to win prizes, so it's just a lot of fun. "

This year's theme is ‘Bringing New York City to Charlottesville.'  The night will end with a disco ball drop at the Main Street Arena. A performance by Groove Train at 11:15 p.m. will kick off the ball drop celebration.  Once the clock strikes midnight, balloons and disco ball will fall to officially welcome the New Year.
