glass globe in the sky with fireworks and smoke


Join your friends, family, and neighbors for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve celebration! Visit historic downtown Lancaster for a family-friendly street party where you will taste fantastic food and spirits at local restaurants and pubs, watch the ascent of the giant glass globe, and light up the sky with a spectacular fireworks show!

This event celebrates the importance of glass in Lancaster’s history as the community creates a beautiful piece of glass art for this fun party. On New Year’s Eve, the globe rises high above Zane Square and rings in the new year. The event is completely free for everyone to watch and enjoy.
