"Make New Friends, Keep the Old" is the theme for the 25th First Night Danbury, an apt umbrella for this year's New Year's Eve celebration on Wednesday, December 31st, 2014 in downtown Danbury. Founded n 1989 by a community of enthusiastic volunteers and, more recently, taken under wing and given new vigor by CityCenter Danbury, First Night Danbury is one of the oldest First Nights in the U.S. and only one of three in Connecticut.
To mark First Night Danbury's milestone silver anniversary, the highly anticipated event is seeking fond remembrances, childhood memories, tall tales, "oops" moments, and other "I remember" stories to compile and document as it reminisces on the history of this popularly embraced event and its down-home, downtown family-friendly vision. Whether founding volunteer, veteran performer, participating site or service, or one of the crowd, First Night Danbury wants to hear from you. You can mail items - including pictures - to Attn: First Night Danbury, CityCenter, 186 Main Street, Danbury CT 06810 or email directly to Ted Killmer (whose had the fun of putting together First Night for the past 5 years) at firstname.lastname@example.org Please include your contact information. Maybe we'll go viral!
