Crowds flock to First Night festivities in Morristown

Thousands were in Morristown Saturday to take part in First Night festivities.



It marked the 25th year for the popular event, which is Morristown's big New Year's Eve celebration.



Children and parents crowded Morristown's high school for the first events of First Night. 



Legos littered the tables of the school cafeteria with children building towards the new year. Parents and their children also played hula hoop together.



Hundreds of volunteers helped make New Jersey's largest First Night celebration happen.



"They're giving their time, their energy, their talent so that our community and others could enjoy it," said Craig Schlosser, director of First Night Morristown.



First Night Morristown is expected to continue for a 26th year and the organizers say they expect to attract more people as the years go on.
