First Night Syracuse

Syracuse, NY 13201

Forget finding a babysitter and paying an expensive cover charge.This year your New Year's Eve fun is right in your own backyard. First Night is back and is Free! Last year, First Night brought more than 8,800 people to Onondaga Lake Park for a family-friendly New Year's Eve celebration.

The event will also have lots of activities for younger revelers, including laser tag, infatables, crafts, video games, and a family dance party.  Stick around for the stroke of midnight because the orange ball drop returns, followed by an amazing fireworks display to ring in 2014 the right way.
