Virginia Beach will once again celebrate the arrival of the New Year with a festive “Last Night on the Town” New Year’s Eve event in Town Center, hosted by the Central Business District Association.
The Countdown Stage on Columbus Avenue is the hub for festivities and live music!
Headlining at Last Night on the Town this year: 10,000 Maniacs!
One of the most critically acclaimed bands of the last three decades, 10,000 Maniacs created the first wave of alternative rock bands and what became know as the alternative rock format on FM radio. By producing, manufacturing and marketing their own recordings, 10,000 Maniacs were one of the original “indie” bands before signing with Elektra Records. Our Time in Eden was released in 1992, and featured the hit singles, “Candy Everybody Wants” and “These Are Days,” selling more than three million copies. Rolling Stone’s four-star review called it a “…gripping new album …with a provocative, unnerving power.” In 2013 10,000 Maniacs released the album Music From The Motion Picture, which was hailed as a beautiful affirmation of the band’s classic poetic lyrics and dreamy Americana blend.
The 5th annual Last Night on the Town will begin with a family-friendly celebration at Pembroke Mall, then continues right through the night with entertainment at Town Center, culminating with a live performance at Countdown Stage and fireworks!
Beginning at 2:00pm, bring the children to Pembroke Mall for family fun on several stages. Kids can celebrate together during their own countdown celebration!
Toast to the New Year at Town Center’s Countdown Stage from 5:30pm until Midnight. Enjoy more roving entertainment and dance the night away to performances by favorite local bands. Performances on the main stage keep things rocking until the New Year. Count down to midnight and enjoy a spectacular laser light and fireworks show as a big ball drops to ring in 2018!
All activities and entertainment are free and open to the public.
Food and adult beverages will be available for purchase in the heart of Town Center. Free parking will be available in the Town Center garages, with overflow parking available at Pembroke Mall.
Proceeds support the Virginia Legends Walk.
