CHEERS - To staying local for New Year's Eve. Local residents won't have to venture far to have a good time ringing in the new year. Several local public events are scheduled on New Year's Eve. Among them are a 9 p.m. fireworks display in downtown Johnstown; a celebration with live entertainment at the Glove Performing Arts Center in Gloversville; and a Last Night festival in St. Johnsville, which will include music, fireworks and other activities. That's just a sampling. People who are tempted to drive to Saratoga, Albany and other parts of the region for a New Year's Eve celebration should remember to check to see what's going on right in our local counties first.
