The New Year’s Eve celebration, planned and staffed by community volunteers, will be held at the square in the heart of downtown Hershey and is free to the public.
The opening act is Billy Burnette, former guitarist for Fleetwood Mac. Steve Augeri, former frontman of Journey, will headline the annual event, which culminates with the raising of the 7-foot-tall, 80-inch-wide and 300-pound replica of a Hershey's Kiss and fireworks at midnight.
Children's activities at The Hershey Story Museum on Chocolate Avenue and the Hershey First United Methodist Church. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be available by various vendors throughout the evening.
