County to Host First Annual 5K New Year's Eve Dash

Attendees will ring in the New Year with a run, music and dancing.

Nassau County will host its First Annual 5k New Year's Eve Dash in Eisenhower Park on Monday night.

Nassau County teamed up with Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (LICADD) for the celebration to promote safe drinking and to prevent drinking while driving.

The start line will feature lighting, sound and video as the ball drops in Times Square. Participants will count down to 12 a.m. and start the race with a toast to the New Year.

After completing the race, attendees can enjoy a New Year's Eve party, which will take place in a tent adjacent to the Nassau County Aquatic Center. The party will include a buffet, drinks, music and dancing until 2 a.m.

The fee for runners and revelers will be $68 and revelers only and children 12 and under will have a fee of $50.
