PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — You don’t have to break the bank to ring in the New Year.

Katie Winkler with Philebrity says that Johnny Brenda’s is hosting the second annual Snowflake Ball, and “it’s only 5 bucks, so come and bring your friends!”

You can hear Hadas Kuznits’ full ‘Philly Scene’ interview with Katie Winkler in this CBSPhilly podcast…

Or, for a $30 cover charge, DJ Lee Jones recommends the party at Zee Bar:

“We have ten DJs, a live band, four rooms to eat, drink, dance and ring in the New Year,” he says.

Of course, no list is complete without a fireworks viewing location. Laurie Hendricks, with the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation, says the family-friendly fun is on Penn’s Landing.

“There is ice skating at the Blue Cross RiverRink. We have two ‘Parties on Ice,’ sort of the best place to view each of the fireworks shows. We have a skater and spectator ticket, and those tickets are available at http://www.riverrink.com.”;

And don’t forget: KYW Newsradio will provide the soundtrack to the fireworks. Listen to 1060 AM while you’re watching to get the full effect of the synchronized fireworks shows at 6 p.m. and midnight.
