New Years in Williamsburg

firstnightwilliamsburgThere are plenty of great ways to spend the last day of 2015 in Williamsburg!

  • Busch Gardens’ Christmastown– Enjoy more than 5 million twinkling lights and their signature peppermint fudge hot chocolate as well as great shows.
  • Happy Hogmany in Colonial Williamsburg- In the 17th century the government had suppressed Christmas celebrations, so Scotland turned to New Year’s Eve for its end-of-year frivolity, a tradition that remains strong to this day.  Join John Turner, David Gardner, and Cliff Williams as they present songs, tunes, and stories to say farewell to 2015 and welcome 2016.  Happy Hogmanay is held at the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum from 1:30pm-2:30pm.  Admission is $9 per person.
  • First Night Williamsburg– First Night of Williamsburg is a family-oriented, non-alcoholic New Year’s Eve celebration of the performing arts presented throughout the City and on the campus of the College of William & Mary. Buttons are $15/person.
