Nearly 1,500 revelers gathered in the atrium of New Roc City for the third annual Ring in the New Year at Noon on Monday, December 31. With Master of Ceremonies Jimmy Fink of 107.1 The Peak, New Roc City hosted the end-of-the-year celebration in a Times-Square simulated atmosphere complete with fun-filled family activities and an indoor balloon release at the stroke of noon. Ring in the New Year at Noon is sponsored by CB Richard Ellis, and is held in association with the New Rochelle Business Improvement District and their BID Family Day event series.

Participating tenants include FUNFUZION Games and Rides, Premier Martial Arts, Modell’s Sporting Goods, Monroe College, Regal IMAX Theater, Jani Chinese and Japanese Restaurant, Applebee’s and LAZ Parking.
There was no need for kids to stay up until midnight as Jimmy Fink rang in the New Year early with the countdown to noon complete with a thrilling balloon release that covered all three floors with festive, brightly-colored balloons. Families were invited to spend the rest of the afternoon at New Roc’s complex to complete their fun-filled New Year’s celebration.
