CLARKSBURG -

"Who needs Times Square when you have Jackson Square?"

That's the motto the organizers or the first ever Clarksburg New Year's Eve celebration have been using leading up to Monday night's celebration.

The city of Clarksburg threw a New Years party downtown in Jackson Square Monday night. Mayor Patsy Trecost and Vice-Mayor Kathy Goings were surprised with the amount of people at the party.

"We're actually shocked already so we couldn't be happier. It's New Years and it's a new beginning for everybody and everybody likes a fresh start," said Trecost.

There were food vendors, refreshments, entertainment and even the city's own version of the ball drop to complete the festivities.

"The heaters are awesome and the band, Davisson Brothers... all the way! And they're local" said Pam McNally, Clarksburg resident.

Jackson Square was filled with people enjoying the atmosphere and the entertainment. Mayor Trecost said coming together as a community is one of the best parts.

"It's not just Clarksburg, but it's a county. We're a community here and we all feed off of each other. We all know each other and no better time than with your family and friends," Trecost said.

The city says it will wait and see if it will continue this celebration, but for now, next year looks promising.

"We've gotten a lot of positive feedback. I just think that it will get bigger and bigger" said Goings.

And the community members plan to come back, if the city holds it again.

"We will be back here in 2013, to bring in 2014" said McNally.

"We will be here. We would come back, it's a fun time" said Star McCartney, Fairmont resident.
