Philly rings in 2020 with celebrations across the city

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- It was a night of celebration in Philadelphia as people found fun across the city as they counted down to 2020!

The night was capped off by a fireworks show at the stroke of midnight over the Delaware River.

But before that, it was time to party! We found one celebration at the City Winery at 990 Filbert Street.

The band, Kindred the Family Soul, had crowd moving. Before the show we spoke with some people in the crowd about their new decade plans.

Arnold Norfield of Germantown said, "I'm planning to go to Vegas and Myrtle Beach."

From there we found more music.

The Philadelphia Orchestra captivated a few thousand at the Kimmel Center.

Then it was up the street to the Bellevue. There was food and dancing... what wasn't to love?

Clearly it was a popular ticket, as dozens and dozens of people were waiting to get in.
