First Night Saratoga, the largest New Year’s Eve celebration in the region, is a GE Kids in Free event. One child aged 12 and under will be admitted free with each paid adult. Both Saratoga Arts and GE share the goal of providing a variety of outstanding, family-oriented community events. Since First Night Saratoga is an alcohol-free, family-friendly event, it is a natural fit with GE’s Kids In Free program which offers free admission for kids 12 and under with a paying adult at special events across New York’s Capital Region.

How it works

Detach the coupon on your buttoncard and redeem it on New Year’s Eve at one of the following locations:

Saratoga Arts (320 Broadway, Saratoga)
Saratoga City Center (522 Broadway)
Lake Avenue School (126 Lake Ave) between 6-9pm

Participants receive a wristband that will allow one admission of a child 12 years old and under to all First Night venues.
