First Night Riverbend is tonight, and the alcohol and drug-free New Year's Eve celebration held each year at Lewis and Clark Community College will feature the return of an old venue this year. The Hathaway Cultural Center was in the midst of a major renovation last year, but is ready to host numerous artists and attractions for New Year 2011.
There is an early fireworks show at 9pm, as well as the traditional midnight display. First Night co-organizers Gail Drillinger and John Nell invite the public to attend.
