City of Kingston to host New Year’s Eve Countdown Celebration in Uptown Kingston
With performances by Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones and fireworks sponsored by Basch and Keegan
KINGSTON, N.Y. Mayor Steve Noble is pleased to announce the 2017-2018 New Year’s celebration to be held at the corner of Wall St. and North Front St. in Uptown Kingston on Sunday, December 31, 2017 at 11:00pm. Residents and visitors will be treated to an outdoor performance by local rockabilly band Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones. As the clock nears midnight, attendees will enjoy a moving rendition of Auld Lang Syne and count down the final moments of 2017. A decorative ball, created by local business Possibility Studios, will drop as the clock strikes midnight. As Kingston ushers in 2018, a brilliant fireworks display sponsored by Basch and Keegan will light up the sky. Shuttles will be running through Uptown, Midtown and Downtown from 7:00pm-1:00am on a continuous loop. Radio Kingston will broadcast the event live.
“We are wrapping up an incredible year,” said Mayor Noble. “As 2017 comes to a close, I am proud of what our community has accomplished together, but even more excited about what 2018 will bring. I look forward to celebrating the New Year with my family, friends and neighbors.”
