Happy New Year to all my friends and family (and any future friends who see this who I don't know yet). After Cath and the kids went to bed, I celebrated New Years taking pictures of the First Night Alexandria fireworks.The finale of the Alexandria First Night Celebration is a fireworks display launched from Shuters Hill, a landmark on one of the Wright Brothers' early flights, now much better known as the site of the George Washington Masonic National Memorial. The fireworks began promptly at midnight. Leading up to the fireworks, there was a great a capella singing group The Stairwells, then a few words from Mayor Euille. The fireworks were great and a wonderful kickoff to the New Year.
