By Diane Chase,   author of Adirondack Family Time Guidebooks Besides welcoming the New Year in with a bang, here are a few Adirondack (Saratoga Springs, Plattsburgh and Albany) suggestions for welcoming New Year's Eve 2015 on December 31, 2014.  1) Saranac Lake will host its annual First Night celebration with magicians, live music, fireworks,  Buttons are $12 (until December 31 where the price goes up to $15) and children 12 and under free. At midnight countdown as the ball drops and culminates with fireworks over Lake Flower. Opening ceremony will be on the Harrietstown Town Hall steps at 5:45 p.m. From then until midnight is a mixture of  circus comedy, storytelling and live music. Join Adirondack Family Time on Dec 31 (6-7 pm) at the Harrietstown Town Hall for balloon animals and face painting.  ( First Night ®  Saranac Lake is proud to be one of 75 First Night ®  New Year's Eve celebrations conducted across the United States.
