Looking for something  to do on New Years Eve that doesnt include getting drunk at a bar, or staying at home to watch the ball fall?  Try First Night Saratoga.

First Night Saratoga, 2011 presented by Saratoga Arts. Start with the opening ceremony at 5:30pm on Friday, December 31 at the new Saratoga Springs City Center, and end with midnight fireworks at Congress Park.  Over seventy musical acts and art installations in 35 venues in between. A $15 First Night Button gets you into everything, and supports future community arts programming.  There is also a First Night 5k run, which has sold out to run in but you can cheer on the runners.  For more information or to purchase your buttons click here.
