Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE -- With holiday celebrations underway, folks are kissing 2017 goodbye and welcoming the new year. 

"It means starting over," said Ashley Simmons, a bartender at Carbondale's Hangar 9.

She brought in the new year at work, but it's an experience she finds joy in. 

"We experience different moments in peoples' lives and it's just kind of great to go through that transition," Simmons said. "We're celebrating a new year and it's just a very exciting time to start over and celebrate what's to come."

A local band called "Til the Morning Comes" performed live music throughout the night of New Year's Eve.
