TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona’s favorite New Year’s Eve destination is blasting back to the past to ring in 2013.  Mill Avenue’s New Year’s Eve will revisit the origins of their celebrations by hosting a free community celebration on Dec. 31, 2012. For the first time in decades, access to Mill Avenue’s restaurants, shops, and unique culture will be free and open to the public to enjoy a night of live music, entertainment, food, and fireworks.

The celebration will have a little something for everyone.  A Family Fun Zone, Sponsored by Chevrolet, will bring family fun to the streets with Radio Disney's Rockin’ Road Show.   Emcees, DJs, and music will captivate audiences with music, dancing, and interactive games from 6-9 p.m. on 7th Street, just west of Mill Avenue.

Two fireworks shows will help announce the coming of 2013.  At 9pm, an early show will allow kids and families to partake in the annual tradition of New Year’s Eve, while adults can witness the 12am fireworks show officially celebrating Arizona’s strike of midnight.

Ryan O'Donnell gave us a preview of the big event on "Good Morning! Arizona."
