On the morning of December 31st, an exciting show by roller skates, impressive stilt dancers, jugglers, and acrobats kicked off the celebrations!
The SNFCC rang in the new year with a dazzling fireworks show followed by a unique New Year's party that blended Jazz, Hip-Hop, Soul with Electronica sounds.
The very first race of the new year, the SNF RUN: 2018 FIRST RUN, came right next, featuring more than 1,300 runners of all ages! The 4K night-time race, starting and finishing at the SNFCC, took place for the second consecutive year and was made possible through a grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). The race was overseen by the NGO Regeneration & Progress and organized in collaboration with the SNFCC.
Last but certainly not least, for this night only, the Stavros Niarchos Park and the SNFCC’s ice-skating rink, which had already welcomed more than 10,000 skaters, stayed open until 02:00 am!
The New Year’s events were made possible through an exclusive grant from the SNF.
