LANCASTER, N.Y. — It's been 20 years since the Village of Lancaster held a New Year's Eve celebration, but now the village is ringing in 2022 with food trucks, ice skating, fireworks, and a ball drop.
It's all happening on New Year's Eve at West Main and North Aurora Street. Organizers and local businesses are excited to bring everyone together after a tough year due to the pandemic.
"The villagers, the residents have all come out and supported us during this time, during COVID, during restrictions and really have been wonderful... making sure we're okay as well as they're okay," said Tammie Schafer Lancaster's special events coordinator.
All of the New Year's Eve celebrations will be happening outside to keep people safe. If you plan on ice skating, organizers say make sure you bring your own pair of ice skates.
The event kicks off at 10 p.m. and goes until 12:30 a.m. The special fireworks display will happen as the ball drops at midnight.
