Admission button are twelve bucks now, or you can buy one at the door for three dollars more.

Kids under twelve can get in for free.

Some of the proceeds go to the Glacier National Park Conservancy.

"The police department loves the event, the sheriff's department. They have not issued a DUI in this community for years because I think First Night is such an awesome event," said Jennifer Young, the Kalispell recreation superintendent.

Buttons are at Colter Coffee, Super One Foods, the Kalispell Parks and Recreation department, and several other spots across the Valley.

Free events start at 1:00 p.m. in the Kalispell mall.
