Thousands of spectators are expected to line the streets of White Plains New Year’s Eve to usher in 2023.
The free party kicks off at 10:30 p.m. at Main St. and Court St. with live music from Just the Melody Band (JTM), an all-star cast featuring Grammy nominee Irene Blackman. There will also be a traditional ball drop at midnight and a fireworks display.
