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, sample great food and go home saying they couldn’t do everything that First Night® had to offer.  Admission is free with purchase of a First Night button (will be available at various downtown businesses in December).   Sponsored by the Oil City Arts & Cultural Commission.
