First Night Fredericksburg kicks off at 7:00 p.m. tonight and buttons are still a discounted five bucks in advance at www.fredericksburgfirstnight.com or eight bucks along Sophia Street tonight, while they last.
The family events, music, crafts and monster truck rides wrap up with the globe falling at midnight. Among the kids events: face painting, monster truck rides, crafts and their own 2014 ringing in of the New Year at 9:00 p.m. At 11:40 p.m., the globe starts to drop and reaches the bottom at midnight. Then a live fireworks show starts, from across the Rappahannock River.
If you live further away, downtown Warrenton hosts its' own celebration. If you want a little more Christmas, tonight is the last for the Concert in Lights show in the Village at the Spotsy Towne Center.
