Two New Year's Eve Countdowns (7:00 pm & Midnight) will take place at the Sonar Tide Patio next to City Hall.  There will be activities throughout the afternoon and evening for all ages to enjoy. No need to worry about the cold - there is plenty of space inside the glass atrium and patio to enjoy the festivities.


We're going bigger this year! The NYE Ball will be 200 feet in the air lighting up downtown way above City Hall.
