You can usher in the New Year in downtown Albany with food, music and a big fireworks show. The city teamed up with Cumulus Media to host a New Year's Eve Explosion.

There will be live music and food at the Veteran's Amphitheater starting at 9:00PM December 31st. And then at midnight, the fireworks show begins. There's a big Mystery Ball Drop too.

"They won't tell me what they are designing, but I had asked them to design something sort of like the ball in New York so that we can have our own tradition each year that we, down on the river, can drop to signify the end of the year," said Lorie Farkas, Water, Gas and Light.

The event is free. Last year, more than 20,000 people came out to watch the fireworks. So get there early to get a good view.
