"We're going to have excitement for everybody, this of course is a friendly event," stated event coordinator Denise Welch.
The venue is a change from last year, as is the price of admission. However the changes will be reflected in the quality of the event, something Mrs. Welch hopes to improve on year to year.
"We're just trying to upscale it a little bit this year," stated Welch. "You always want to make changes and improve every year."
The Harriott II will also be improving upon last year's new years cruise. The two hour ride includes entertainment, party favors, a champagne toast, a view of the fireworks, hor deurves, and a cash bar for this year's celebration.
The riverboat will board at 10:00pm and cruise until 12:30am. Tickets for the cruise are $50 per adult.
