At 11:59am the countdown to noon will begin. Followed by a balloon drop, a 30 minute glow jump and bubble wrap fireworks. A similar jump will happen from 7-9pm.

“The kids can jump and have a good time and wear themselves out so they’re not wearing them out at home,” Pemberton said.

For adults looking for something different to do the South Street comedy club is severing more than laughs before midnight.

“Listen if your looking to do something different for New year’s Eve this is it,” South Street comedy club host Harvey Boyd said. “Because you’ve got dance music, you’ve got a musician, you’ve got a stand up comedian, you’ve got a table side card magician as well.”
