Tonight’s First Night celebration ringing in the new year in downtown Spokane will feature fire and ice.

“We have approximately 150 different performers and different types of activities,” said Lona Barnum, executive director of First Night Spokane. Participants can expect “anything from music, dance, theater, comedy, visual arts. We have fire dancers on Wall Street this year. We have a world-renowned ice carver at Riverfront Park who will be doing a magnificent ice carving.”

The 14th annual Winter Festival of Arts & Entertainment, also known as First Night, will start at 7 p.m. Jacyln Archer, SR. More here.

We've done FIrst Night several times. It's a lot of fun for families and a great deal. Have you been to First Night Spokane?
