HARRISONBURG, Va. A new opportunity is available for those attending the holiday parade in Harrisonburg on Friday. Buttons for First Night Harrisonburg will be available for purchase directly following the parade.
This is the first time the organization will be pre-selling tickets this early. Sales start tonight, at the holiday parade immediately following the lighting of the christmas tree.
Terry Burkhalter, the Executive Director of First Night Harrisonburg said, he hopes to increase revenue sales by pre-selling these buttons.
First Night Harrisonburg is a New Years Eve party for families and friends of all ages. It is a time that highlights the arts and brings the community together by transforming this downtown area into performance venues that showcase local and regional talent. For example, live comedy, children's activities and a grand finale fireworks show.
"By showing that button, you can get into any of the venues throughout the night. And, the programs are worth a lot more than what the button costs. So, the entertainment we have... it is a fun evening and everybody's' interests are usually captured," said Burkhalter.
The night of the event, the buttons are eight dollars. But, if you buy them earlier, they are six dollars.
The buttons will be sold throughout venues downtown for the weeks leading up to New Years.
