Get out your party hats. Cuyahoga Falls may not be Paris, New York City or Las Vegas, but residents still know how to have a good time.
New Year's Eve is filled with parties complete with food, music and fun. Sheraton Suites, Todaro's Party Center, and The Funny Stop all provide avenues for midnight fun.
If you like to attend church New Year's Day, a few churches have services for the occasion, as well.

The Sheraton Suites in downtown Cuyahoga bills its New Year's Eve Celebration as “the area's classiest and best.” Guests ages 21 and over can dance to Cat DJ in the Grand Ballroom or to the contemporary and classic sounds of the The Gene Fiocca Band featuring song stylist Kim Karam in the glass enclosed atrium.
