New Year’s Eve 2023 in Gettysburg creates a bang

Hundreds of people watched New Year’s Eve fireworks in and around the Gettysburg Square at midnight on Saturday night, a return to a once-traditional event.

The evening included music, dancing, food trucks, and the dropping of a large lighted version of Abraham Lincoln’s classic stovepipe hat.

The weather brought some rain and fog but that did not stop the festivities.

The event was sponsored by Gettysburg Alive and other local organizations including Wellspan Health.
