VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - With 2017 quickly approaching, Town Center is gearing up for their annual "Last Night on the Town" event Saturday night.

The event will include live music, food and games.

Organizers say last year they had about 8,000 people in attendance.

With the large flow of people, Virginia Beach Police say people can expect to see a large police presence in the area.

They will also offer "do not tow" stickers and set up checkpoints.

If you're going to be out drinking, AAA is offering "tipsy tow".

If you need a safe ride home, call 1-800-AAA-HELP and tell the operator, “I need a Tipsy Tow,” to receive a free tow and ride home.

The program will be available from 6 p.m. Saturday through 6 a.m. Sunday.
