First Night Alexandria, an annual New Year’s Eve music festival and the largest family-friendly and alcohol-free New Year’s Eve party in the Washington, D.C. region, returns to Alexandria December 31, 2019  with fun for the family beginning at 2 p.m., entertainment starting at 7 p.m. and a culminating spectacular fireworks display—the only one in the D.C. metro area—over the Potomac River at midnight. This annual New Year’s Eve bash presented by the City of Alexandria, Dominion Energy, MGM National Harbor and Virginia Paving Company, takes over Old Town with more than 100 performances at 25 warm indoor venues.

Fireworks will happen in the rain unless it’s a major weather event (which is not in the forecast.)
