Get ready to ring in 2014 in the Valley

Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN TWP., Ohio - Christmas is over, but planning for New Year's celebrations is just getting started.

Instead of the traditional ball drop, families can strike out New Year's Eve. Businesses are preparing for big crowds and Camelot Lanes on Rt. 244 is already busy selling its party packages for the night.

"From about 5 o'clock until 1 o'clock, this place is packed, every single lane is occupied," Bob Smith says, owner of Camelot Lanes. 

The bowling alley offers four different 3-hour party packages for up to six people on Tuesday beginning at 1 p.m., 5 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. 

If you're hosting your own party, the Party Place in Boardman recommends stocking up on supplies over the weekend.

"Definitely I'd say the cannons, the hats and the tiaras are the most popular, so I would get here first, because those sell out quick," Charity Aeschbacher says, with Party Place.

Families interested in getting out of the house can choose from one of the annual community celebrations. 

First Night Canfield will offer something fun for those young and old from dancing to live performers and a bouncy house for children. Buttons for the 14th annual affair cost $10 for adults and those 18 and under are free.

First Night Youngstown begins at 5 p.m. and New Year's Eve Salem starts at 6 p.m.
