Celebrate New Year's Eve 2017 in Style
Ring in the coming year with revelry and cheer
It’s the start of a new year, and while it’s okay to strive for a “new you,” we sincerely hope you don’t do away with the entire “old you.” Specifically, hold on to the “old you” that loves getting dressed to the nines, slugging back a few drinks, and partying the night away. Otherwise the following New Year's Eve celebrations (and 2017 in general) would be a little too dull for our liking.
Although, after dealing with 2016, perhaps dull wouldn’t be too terrible.
Peekskill New Year’s Eve Celebration
The party in Peekskill starts at 10 p.m. with a ball drop, live music by Midnight Image at the corner of Park and Division Street, and fireworks after midnight.
Festivities at the White Plains New Year’s celebration include a ball drop, fireworks, confetti, and live music from DJ Edvin Ortega, from Orange is The New Black and Gotham, and his tribute band Larger Than Life. The party extends from 10 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. on Main and Court streets, with gated entrances at Main Street at Church Street, Renaissance Square, and Martine Avenue at Mamaroneck Avenue.

Streets in the area will begin closing around 1 p.m. New Years Eve.
Balls and Parties
New Year’s at the Westchester Broadway Theatre
If you’re trying to ring in the new year in true style, hit the Westchester Broadway Theatre for their gala celebration and dinner. There’s going to be a performance of Saturday Night Fever, but the real party starts when the champagne, music, and dancing take center stage. This party will last until 2 a.m., so it’s definitely for the party animals looking to dance the night away.
