(ABC 6 News) – Experience Rochester is hosting its first ever Celebrate Rochester New Year’s Eve event at the Mayo Civic Center in downtown Rochester.

This was a free event split up into two parts. There were bounce houses roller blading video games some live music and food from local vendors for the Family activities between 2pm and 8pm.

Then at 8pm, it was adults only in the auditorium for live music, drinks and the ball drop at midnight.

Organizers say it was important that they get the community together to celebrate the new year.

“We wanted to do something really special for the community. So, we built a team in-house form all different departments, coming together saying what can we do to create something special for Rochester. We think we got a hit,” said Vice President of Marketing at Experience Rochester.
