Welcome to First Night Williamsburg, the place where THE New Year's Eve Celebration begins!
We are located in Williamsburg Virginia, the home of the Colonial Capital.
A host of entertainers performed all evening with great responses. Food vendors stayed busy and many even ate their food in the cool crisp air at picnic tables.
Six acts delighted all ages at The Matthew Whaley School. The night air was perfect as the fireworks lit up the sky and also little faces.
Over 3000 people came to Zable Stadium for a show which included Soundworks, regional a capella winners; and Ray Gresham performing "I'm Proud to be an American."
The main fireworks looked like a sparking color collage against the black sky and applause broke out more than once. City of Williamsburg Mayor Haulman welcomed the crowd.
Thank you for coming to First Night Williamsburg 2013.
Our Honorary Chairman was City of Williamsburg Mayor Clyde Haulman.
