Troy’s Millennium Celebration

bound to knock your socks off

It’s almost time for the New Year’s Eve gala of Troy’s Year 2000 Celebration, which is expected to top all the events in the city’s history.

Attendees are sure to have a thrilling time because of the two entertainment events scheduled for the New Year Celebration. It will be held tomorrow night on the Downtown Square.

All activities begin at 8 p.m. and conclude at 1 p.m. Jan. 1, 2000.

Great American Video Dance Party, an entertainment system, and Reactor, a thrill ride, will headline the celebration. There will be food booths and exhibits.

The video dance party is a full fledged dance show that consists of two 336 square foot image projection screens, a sound system and laser light show, he said. It shows real music videos and live video cameras allow dancers to take part in the action.The system also includes a mirror ball, special effects, fog and bubble machines.

The Reactor is a motion simulation thrill ride which allows participants to ride through movie scenes.

There will also be Fun Flicks, an interactive video show that will allow participants to take home a video tape of their New Year’s Eve experience. Using more than $.25 million worth of state-of-the-art sound and video equipment and special effects, people get to make their own videos.

But to enjoy the festivities, people have to be there, and that’s where all of us come in.

It’s safe, clean, fun and it’s in a familiar setting. And parents don’t have to leave their children at home.

With all of the to-do being made over Y2K, this is an important issue to many people. As a result of this, security will be beefed up throughout Troy with a strong showing of police officers to handle any poetential problems. One place they’ll be concentrated is downtown, so there’s really no safer place to be with your children to ring in the new millennium.

Turn out and support the event. Many hard-working people went to a lot of trouble to work out the plan and did a tremendous job of organizing and planning the event.

Because of what they put into it, we are sure you won’t be disappointed with what you take out of it..

And if you decide not to go, just remember that you won’t get this opportunity again – unless you happen to be here for the next millennium celebration.
