Ringing in the new year in Alexandria is going to be a virtual and in-person experience this time around.
On Thursday, First Night Alexandria announced that due to the coronavirus pandemic its 26th annual New Year’s Eve celebration will be a hybrid event.

Chris Reddick, the president of the First Night Alexandria Board of Directors, said the evening will be an unforgettable experience, regardless of whether families attend in-person.
“First Night Alexandria is the capstone of the holiday season for Alexandria and the entire DMV,” Reddick said. “Whether you attend in person or online, you will be glad you experienced First Night Alexandria, a regional treasure to be savored.”
