First Night, New Years Eve Celebrations across America

First Night, the New Years Eve Celebrations across America will be in full swing on December 31, 2011 in towns like Columbia Missouri.

Check with your local city to see if they are organizing a First Night event for you to attend.  These are family fun events and a great way to ring in the New Year.

If you don't have one in your town, why don't you consider coming to Columbia Missouri for their celebration.  There are concerts for all ages, 2 parades (one for kids and one for adults), fireworks and much, much more. 

And when you make your plans to attend First Night Columbia 2012, be sure to book your New Years Eve lodging at the University Avenue Bed and Breakfast.
