Kalamazoo's New Year's Fest is just days away


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Now that Christmas is behind us its time to think about New Years Fest. Every year thousands turn out for the biggest non-alcoholic New Years Party in Southwest Michigan.

And like Christmas, you can wing it, but it’s so much better when you plan.

There will be over 70-separate performances with several additional activities, a children’s tent and it will all conclude with fireworks and the ball drop at midnight.

Organizer Deb Droppers says Buttons can be purchased at the Service Counter of Hardings Markets, or this year they are available online.

She says buttons are $5 in advance and $10 in the park that night.

Planning materials include their brochure, their website and their Facebook page which features videos of some of the acts.
