There will be food, drinks and games all night long. Kids will compete in basketball and dodgeball tournaments. There will even be laser tag and a midnight celebration.
Bryan Drake, a Christian illusionist, will perform throughout the night.
“It’s not your typical illusionist,” Cline said. “He’ll bring sort of a fun element.”
Davis said she will be downtown all night, anxiously awaiting the ball drop.
“I get nervous when it gets down to the wire,” she said. “But I love being down there.”
