Patchogue, NY (MorichesDaily) – The Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce, Inc. is proud to be presenting a new and unique community-wide event; a New Year’s Eve celebration! Since Patchogue is “ahead of the times,” the 2014 event will start at 8 p.m. and end at 9 p.m. with a countdown and raising of Patchogue’s New Years Eve ball.
Originally, the event was planned for later in the evening, but in working with the Village of Patchogue, public safety agencies, local businesses and organizations, Midnight on Main St. will begin at 8 p.m.
The event is a New Year’s Eve celebration complete with an illuminated ball, designed and created by Signarama and NorthStar Sign and Neon, which will rise from the roof of Capital One Bank at 116 East Main St. at the stroke of 9 p.m. At that time, a display of grand illuminations will be set off by Grucci Fireworks, thanks to a generous donation by the Christmas N’ Patchogue Committee. DJ Jay Letterman will be on hand to play music beginning at 8 p.m. to entertain the crowd. Attendees will receive party hats, noise makers and hot beverages to keep warm.
Sponsors of Midnight on Main St. include Blue Point Brewery, Blum’s, Capital One Bank, the Economic Opportunity Council of Suffolk, NorthStar Sign and Neon, Servpro, Signarama, That Meetball Place and the Village of Patchogue Business Improvement District. The Patchogue Chamber also appreciates the dozens of community members who have supported the event through donations on its Kickstarter page.
“This is a perfect way for us to celebrate how 2014 was an amazing year for Patchogue’s continued renaissance,” said Greater Patchogue Chamber President Jacqueline Hensley. “We hope this will become an annual event. Our ball will be rising since Patchogue is a community on the rise.”
This event is free and open to the public. For more information or to sponsor the event, contact the Patchogue Chamber at (631) 207-1000, [email protected] or visit www.patchogue.com.
