Revelers can warm themselves at the bonfires on both sides of town. People wear crazy, decorative hats, walk through rooms filled with balloons, parade down the street making noise, view two fireworks displays, visit their choices of entertainment options, and go home saying that there was so much to do, they couldn't do it all. Admission requires the purchase of a First Night button (available at the Oil City Library, Spilling the Beans, Transit Art Gallery & Gifts, Karma Coffee, and Venango Area Chamber of Commerce).  Orchestrated by the Oil City Arts Council.
