Exciting Entertainment Lineup Announced for Virtual First Night Buffalo
It's looking like New Year's Eve is going to be another holiday indoors this year, and First Night Buffalo is hoping to bring the entertainment right into your home again.
We were all looking forward to 2021. 2020 was a very rough year. 2021...was pretty rough too. Luckily some things opened back up and we were able to get back to business. Sadly though, when it comes to the pandemic, we're still not out of the woods.
So First Night Buffalo is hoping to bring the party to you virtually again this year.
Our priority remains keeping our community’s kids safe and healthy, so we are excited to once again partner with the Independent Health Foundation to bring a safe New Year’s celebration opportunity to families in Western New York. - Allegra Jaros, president, Oishei Children’s Hospital
First Night Buffalo has been bringing people a family-friendly, drug and alcohol-free option to celebrate New Year's Eve since 1988. Thousands of people have attended the event over the years, but with safety in mind again this year, Independent Health (the presenter of the event) will once again present the event virtually.
And now the entertainment lineup has been announced. This year you'll be able to see:
