The holidays are an exciting time of year in Cumberland Valley, and New Year's is no exception!  Whether you're getting away from home, visiting some friends or family in the area or live in Cumberland Valley, be sure to take advantage of the festive events taking place to celebrate the beginning of 2015!

Groove into a Party
Many Cumberland Valley nightlight hot spots are hosting parties complete with music, dancing, food and your favorite libations.  With options including ripping down the mountainside while watching fireworks on your snowboard at Roundtop Mountain Resort, witnessing a quirky Keg Drop while sipping locally brewed ales at Market Cross Pub & Brewery, or savoring a flavorful buffet with a loved one at Allenberry Resort Inn & Playhouse, you'll have a tough time deciding which party is for you!  Hint: Check out Market Cross's Facebook page for event info.

Enjoy a Drop with the Family
Pennsylvania is known for dropping some unusual items at midnight, and Cumberland Valley is no exception! Family-friendly drops include dropping a giant First Night button for First Night in Carlisle, a 10 1/2 foot lighted wrench in Mechanicsburg, a 5 foot tall pair of Yellow Breeches in Lisburn and a 7 foot nail in West Fairview.
