VNB Community Counts: First Night Virginia

December 28, 2010

Community Counts gives you a chance to learn more about the people and the organizations that have a positive impact on our community. This week we feature First Night Virginia.

Cindy Adams joined CBS19's Stephanie Satchell to talk more about the event, which is sponsored by Carpet Plus this year.

Now in its 29th year, this great event draws people from Charlottesville and across the region to celebrate with the entire community. Entertainment includes headliner Mark Nizer, Kamp Kreatures’ life-sized puppets, and live musical performances from local rising stars Carleigh Nesbit and Cody Purvis. You can find a list of entertainment options online.

One wristband allows admission to all events. From December 1-30 prices are $15 adults/$5 kids, then up to $18/$5 on December 31.

On New Year’s Eve, wristbands can only be purchased at the Omni Hotel.
