Alexandria New Years Eve 2015

Alexandria, Virginia, USA, 31 December 2014, Midnight

Alexandria fireworks

First Night in Alexandria in the state of Virginia has become synonymous with New years eve in Washington state, offering one of the biggest parties in the country and helping to grow the burgeoning US NYE traditions of family friendly first night events with a big outdoor party followed by spectacular fireworks.

The event draws additional popularity from its proximity to Washington DC, which in recent years has suspended it's official Capitol Hill fireworks display, leading residents to seek out the best local alternatives, so you can expect to see good levels of traffic heading in from out of town, so if you're making your way here on December 31st then be sure to allow plenty of time for your journey.

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings

 

First Night Alexandria is by far the biggest new year party in the greater Washington DC urban area, featuring an entire evening of entertainment, including live music and performers followed by a dramatic midnight fireworks spectacular over the Potomac River. Note that all venues at this event are alcohol free, which has the aim of enhancing a family atmosphere and keeping rowdy behaviour to a minimum!

The event to welcome 2015 includes a vast variety of entertainment throughout the evening and of course the famous Fireworks on the River! For the full event schedule, check out the listings on the official site:

First Night Alexandria schedule

For the fireworks this year the location will be a large barge moored offshore at the end of King Street. Vantage points are unlikely to be an issue though, you can secure a decent view from pretty much anywhere along the banks of the Potomac, one of the benefits of Alexandria's layout. Admission to the First Night activities costs $20 ($15 if booked prior to December 17th) while children aged 12 and under gain entry for free.

If you're looking for somewhere to eat out before heading on to watch the music and fireworks then there is a huge range of restaurants in town to choose from, with steak houses and Italian particular specialities. Check out full listings here:

Hotels & Accommodation

 

Places to stay in Alexandria are plentiful, but early reservation is very much recommended - you're unlikely to save much by waiting until the last minute, and more likely to find your options severely limited.

Top hotels include the Embassy Suites, Residence Inn Marriott, Radisson Old Town, Westin Alexandria and the Comfort Inn Landmark. Check availability and book local hotels here.
