New this Year

Twilight Fireworks: This year’s celebration features a twilight fireworks display at 6pm on Alexandria’s waterfront geared to families who want to enjoy the show with their kids. First Night Alexandria also hosts an abbreviated encore display of the New Year’s fireworks at midnight on the waterfront.

Fun Hunt: Add adventure, exploration, and education to the last day of the year. After five years, the Fun Hunt returns with new ways to enjoy an afternoon in Old Town Alexandria. Ticketed guests can turn a day of fun and entertainment into potential prize winnings. The adventure concludes at the Block Party at Market Square just prior to the Twilight Fireworks.

Daytime Block Party: Join us at Market Square from 4-6pm for music, a “Cool Happy New Year” demonstration, and special fun just prior to the new Twilight fireworks display.
