Newcomerstown celebrates New Year’s Eve

| December 28, 2015

NEWCOMERSTOWN – It’s almost New Year’s Eve and time for Newcomerstown to celebrate our Third Annual First Night once again. We’ve been working hard and joyously preparing for the pleasure of you and your family’s company at our party in the village. Everyone who is local and from nearby communities is invited to attend. The more the merrier. Come on over that night and plan to have a night that you and the kids will fondly remember for years to come.

We are preparing six venues for entertainment. And, food…ahhh, there will be food. Most of the local restaurants and clubs will be open that night and serving meals. The local Little League will have a stand on Main Street as well. Come for supper and stay for the fun.

The entertainment starts at 8 p.m. and continues until Midnight. Each entertainment venue will start at the top of the hour and continue for one half hour. You will then have a half hour for travel to the next stop. For example, at each of the venues, the first show will begin at 8 p.m. and continue to 8:30 p.m. The travel time is 8:30 – 9 p.m.

The Victory Assembly of God, located at 311 S. College St., is presenting both a professional magic show and a marine life show, a unique but fun combination. Joshua Harris and his family will be performing holiday music at the First Baptist Church, located at 135 S. River St. St. Paul Lutheran Church, located at 121 S. College St., is offering a basketball contest that night. The Olde Main Street Museum, located at 213 W. Canal St. is featuring “Hometown Hee Haw,” a comic skit, East Elementary School, located at 137 S. College St. presents The Mugicians – T.J. Marlatt and his daughter will play music on the Native American flute and the violin and perform magic tricks including a Houdini-style escape, and The Union Hall #134 located at 150 N. River St. will offer dancing to a variety of bygone eras of music up to the present.

At 11:30 p.m., our newly-elected mayor will be sworn in at the entrance to the Olde Main Street Museum. This site was selected because it is next door to the Temperance Tavern Museum, built in 1841, and believed to be the oldest home in Newcomerstown.

We will top the night off with fireworks at midnight – colorful, spectacular fireworks shot off from the hillside above College Street.
