The celebration will continue from 8:15 to 10:30 p.m. with the “Sno Ball” sponsored by Timothy’s World Coffee. It will feature a concert by international recording artists Dragonette, a fiery pyrotechnic performance by Circus Orange and an open-air DJ dance party with DJ Mel Boogie under the glow of thousands of twinkling lights.
