Once again, the annual First Night Saratoga celebration was a fabulous New Year’s Eve smorgasbord of music and more, all crammed into a six-hour period that not only ushered in 2015, but also the 100th anniversary of Saratoga Springs’ incorporation as a city.

The largest New Year’s Eve celebration in New York State outside of NYC, the annual all-around-town extravaganza featured more than 70 regional and touring performance groups at over 30 venues spread all throughout historic downtown Saratoga Springs. Obviously it was impossible to catch all of the performances – or even half of them for that matter – but intrepid Nippertown photographer Andrzej Pilarczyk certainly did his best, roaming one end of town to the other, soaking up plenty of live music, dance, comedy and the evening-capping fireworks display along the way.
