AKRON, Ohio - Downtown Akron was about family, fun and the arts Monday night!
You can scroll through the pictures above at some of the festivities that took place for the New Year's Eve bash at 'First Night Akron.'
The event spanned throughout 10 sites in downtown Akron, featuring everything from art to music, magic and trivia game shows.
Fireworks lit up the sky around 9 p.m., which was one of the two displays scheduled for Monday night. The second fireworks show took place around midnight to ring in 2013!
This was the 17th year for the 'First Night Akron' event.

A schedule conflict has delayed the trial of an Akron man charged with shooting his wife of 45 years in a hospital intensive care unit in what may have been a mercy killing.
When police went looking for the man who they say broke into several area businesses, they had a major clue on their side -- the GPS monitoring device the suspect was wearing.
