State Street is where the New Year's Eve party was at Thursday night.

Social on State blocked off the street for a special VIP party that included a live outdoor concert, fireworks, and a 65-foot ball drop.

This is the first time Binghamton has had fireworks for New Year's.

The ball drop is a new feature as well. Social on State owners hope adding these features will keep locals in town for the celebration this year, and coming back in future years.

Fox 40 was downtown and found the party goers to be exuberant.
