NBC10 will be helped families ring in 2016 with fireworks along Philadelphia’s waterfront.

NBC10 News anchor Keith Jones joined Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter to announce plans for the SugarHouse New Year’s Eve fireworks on New Year’s Eve.

This year’s Star Wars-themed fireworks was brought to you by SugarHouse and televised on NBC10 and Telemundo62 as well as each station’s websites and apps at 6 p.m. on New Year's Eve so that the whole family could enjoy without having to stay up late.

“There’s no better city to bring in the New Year than Philly,” said Jones who emceed Tuesday’s announcement. “It’s a family affair and the best part is my family NBC10/Telemundo62 will bring it to you in a way you’ve never seen before.”

If you plan on staying up to welcome the New Year, the fireworks will go off again at midnight.

"There is no better place to spend the New Year than in Philadelphia," said Nutter. “The Mummers Parade and the SugarHouse New Year’s Eve Fireworks on the Waterfront are both family affairs... The New Year’s Eve fireworks will once again be presented at two times: 6 p.m. and midnight, to accommodate families and those who may have other plans at midnight. So, come to our beautiful city on New Year’s Eve, watch the fireworks, stay overnight in one of our great hotels, and celebrate on Broad Street with the Mummers on New Year’s Day -- it’s a great way to ring in the New Year.”

And, the fun continues after New Year's Eve on the waterfront.

NBC10 and Telemundo62 are also the new official television sponsors of the Blue Cross River Rink Winterfest and ice skating rink on Penn’s Landing. Winterfest is one of Philadelphia’s marquee winter attractions, offering family-friendly activities by day and amazing holiday lights, food by the Garces Group and Franklin Fountain and cocktails by night. It’s open now through March.

Visit Philly also released an interactive guide to the top spots to watch the New Year's Eve fireworks. VIEW IT HERE.

NBC10 and Telemundo62 are helping bring New Year's fun to you and your entire family along the Delaware River waterfront.

The Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest and ice skating rink on Penn’s Landing has something for everyone throughout the winter -- even on warm or cold days.

NBC10 and Telemundo62 are the official broadcast partners of Philadelphia’s marquee winter attraction, offering family-friendly activities by day and amazing holiday lights, food by the Garces Group and Franklin Fountain and cocktails by night. Winterfest is open now through March.

It's free to enter the Winterfest grounds including the chalet-style Lodge, the winter garden and forest created by Delaware River Waterfront Corporation in conjunction with David Fierabend of Groundswell Design Group and to check out the beautiful Christmas tree and lights.

“Skating next to the Delaware River against the backdrop of the Ben Franklin Bridge has become a favorite winter tradition for thousands of area residents,” said Kathy Albanese, Independence Blue Cross director of corporate relations development. “We’re proud to continue supporting a Philadelphia institution that encourages everyone to enjoy fresh air and fun, and helps to make the region a healthier place to work, live, and play.”

Part of that play includes spaces to lounge about inside and outside the lodge as well as being able to get onto the ice.

And, come hungry with plenty of Garces options including Village Burger, Frohman's and Distrito.

“Garces is thrilled to be involved for the second year in a row at Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest," said Garces Group vice president of operations Aaron Kleinle. "DRWC has done an exceptional job of making this a destination for not only Philadelphians, but for visitors from all over the country. Our desire to bring approachable, casual food to such a great location with an amazing partner is quite frankly, a no-brainer."

Franklin Fountain is also back -- this time serving up hot drinks and warm baked goods in a confectionery cabin.

"While the winter is typically slow in the ice cream business, we do have an extensive menu of hot soda drinks and delicious warm baked goods to attract the weather weary," said Franklin Fountain co-owner Ryan Berley.

And, be ready for Philly' best New Year's Eve celebration as the Winterfest serves as the perfect backdrop to watch the SugarHouse Casino New Year's Eve Fireworks at 6 p.m. and midnight. (NBC10 will also broadcast the fireworks display).

Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest is open daily through the winter. Click here for hours and directions.
