First Night Alexandria

A spectacular fireworks display over the Potomac River will ring in the New Year as part of First Night Alexandria, the largest family-friendly and alcohol-free New Year's Eve party in the Washington, DC region. An Alexandria tradition, all of Old Town will be buzzing with activity from 2 p.m. to midnight. Afternoon activities and the sixth Annual Fun Hunt will be followed at 7 p.m. live performances at more than 20 indoor venues in Old Town and one in Del Ray.

Each year, revelers stroll Old Town Alexandria's historic streets among art galleries, historic sites, churches and even retail shops that have been transformed into cozy performance venues. Old Town's many restaurants and pubs welcome First Night fans, with a choice of eateries catering to families with children or folks looking for an upscale date night.
