It's something I always took my daughter, Abby to every year and we absolutely love it.

First and foremost the fireworks to bring in the New Year on the beach in Seaside Heights in the winter is just fabulous. We bring a blanket and sit on the benches on the boardwalk and hope for a great new year.

The thing I love about Seaside's First Night, it's something for kids. There is always so much for New Year's Eve for grown-ups, this is something the whole family can enjoy together.
