The first people to successfully paint the town red spent more time haphazardly assembling scaffolding and arguing over who got to be the "foreman" than enjoying the results. Take the planning out of carousing with today's Groupon: for $16, you get four tickets to First Night Pittsburgh 2011 (a $32 value) on December 31 from 6 p.m. until midnight. Join a bevy of Iron City revelers to ring in the New Year with more than 100 creative activities and programs in a family-friendly and alcohol-free celebration. Launch your festivity rocket with an incendiary fireworks display beginning promptly at 6 p.m. The winter-wonderland-themed First Niagara First Night Parade showcases stunning art cars, impressive inflatables, and the Penguins' mascot, Iceburgh, alongside musical acts like the Mt. Oliver High School band and the impressively buoyant Accordion Pool Party Band. 41-year-old soul-machine Tower of Power will be headlining at the Highmark Stage at 10:45 p.m. Greet 2011 with a traditional dropping of the sphere at Penn Avenue Place followed by a eye-popping fireworks finale to frighten off 2010's obnoxious, lingering poltergeists.
