Admission buttons went on sale Monday. The theme for this New Year's Celebration is "It's Hot."
Mayor Doug Scott promises perfect weather. Some of the headliners are the Second City, Dororthy Paige Turner, and the Rockford Symphony Orchestra.
Organizers announced they still need volunteers to sell and collect buttons, greet people and to set up and tear down decorations after the party.
Volunteers can sign up on the First Night website. It's www.firstnightrockford.com. The website also lists the stores that are selling admission buttons.
