How the Calvacade Countdown came to be...
In the absence of First Night Sandwich this year, Todd Herrmann, co-coordinator for the Performing Arts for SAA, checked with Alliance members to see if there was any interest in putting on a New Year's Eve show...and, indeed, there was!
"Once we learned that First Night Sandwich was not going to happen this year, we felt a void – and an opportunity. This will by no means be a replacement for First Night Sandwich. We look forward to First Night returning with its multiple venues, multiple hours, community food vendors, fairy gardens, circus acts, parade, and fireworks. That said, this will be a really wonderful show to ring in the new year. It's on the earlier side so kids can join us and if you have somewhere else to go for midnight, you can still do that, too!"
