We ring in the new year with a celebration at City Hall each year.

Be sure to fill your pockets with quarters and play vintage arcade games, challenge your friends in the console gaming zone, shop the many toy/comic book vendors, kids can make a fun craft and more.

At 10 p.m., we feature live musical performances until we count down to the new year with Mayor Vrbanovic and members of council.
