First Night Saratoga to Feature The Figgs, Wild Adriatic

First Night Saratoga is New York’s largest New Year’s Eve event outside of New York City. As one of the oldest and largest First Night celebrations in the country, First Night is the most affordable, accessible, family-friendly, safe, and exciting way to spend New Year’s Eve in the region. This year’s theme is A New Dimension.

For the first time this year, First Night organizers are forgoing the traditional fireworks display for a Digital Midnight celebration. Saratoga Arts, in conjunction with CMI Audio Visual, Dave Bigler Studios, and the Pavilion Grand Hotel, will set off digital fireworks at the Saratoga Springs City Center.

In the 20 minutes leading up to midnight an exclusive video will run that incorporates user-submitted photos of previous First Night celebrations. The video will wrap up with the digital fireworks. Anyone who has the URL will be able to watch from anywhere!
