Our View: Oh, what a night!

Posted: December 31, 2012

For a quarter-century now, downtown Winchester has been the scene of First Night, a non-alcoholic, family-themed celebration of the arts — and a perfect way to spend a festive New Year’s Eve.

This year will prove no exception. So, even if you’re all “Redskinned-out” in the wake of Sunday’s climactic NFL game, we hope you recover in time to give downtown a whirl tonight and take in acts as time-tested as Robbie Limon and his band or as newly minted (for our First Night, at least) as banjo-playing Mean Mary, the Blue Ridge Thunder Cloggers, the Classic Strings Duo, and the comedic Spoon Man.

Any way you cut it, a good time figures to be had by all. Hope to see you there.
