Threats of rain failed to dampen the day at Gainesville’s Sparks in the Park event on Saturday night as citizens packed Depot Park to celebrate the new year.  

The event started with DJ Dad Jokes mixing music and, well, dad jokes on the hill, from the Cupid Shuffle to Let It Go, and ended with a fireworks display over the main pond.  

Later that night, the Downtown Countdown began in Bo Diddley Plaza with music by the 24/7 Band and Jackquelyn Graham.
