Music, food, art and entertainment!

It's all going on right now at First Night Binghamton.

Action News Reporter Landon Sears is downtown at the New Year's eve celebration of the arts.

Well Jessica on the other side of the Susquehanna River here, the winds starting to pick up.

In just a short while from now, the fireworks will be set off as they ring in the new Year.

And I have Kevin Fritchler from American Fireworks behind me.

He's getting set up for the big fireworks show again that we've been talking about all day long.

Kevin it is cold, wind chill around negative 20 degrees right now.

How's it going to affect the fireworks show?

Actually its going to make the fireworks look even more spectacular.

The ice crystals in the air will just magnify the colors and they'll just be beautiful so come out and watch the show.

Oh that'll be wonderful and I know before you said that this is going to be the best fireworks show ever, tell me why that is.

Oh every year we just try to make it better and better than the year before, and this year we just done everything we could, next year its going to be hard to top this one so come out and watch the show tonight.

Going all out for a real fun 2009. Thanks a lot Kevin.

I know you have a lot of work to do with the fireworks show less than an hour from now.

So I'll let you get back to work.

Meanwhile, thank you, all night long a lot of activities with First Night Binghamton. Here's a little bit of what took place in downtown Binghamton tonight."
