Kick off the New Year at the Midnight Run! Join the fun and celebrate with music and dancing (starting at 10:00 p.m.) as 2016 comes to a close. With a countdown to midnight beginning at 11:59 p.m., the four-mile run will begin on the stroke of midnight, as will a spectacular fireworks display to light up the night and the start of 2017.

The fun begins at 10:00 p.m. with a rockin’ dance party at Rumsey Playfield for runners and their guests. Stop by the face painting station to add a finishing touch to your festive look, then add your New Year’s resolution to our Resolution Wall for all to see.
