Dallas is the place to be on December 31st 2017. With light shows, concerts, and special events scheduled all over the city, locals and visitors are sure to find just the right way to welcome in the new year. As you begin to make plans to countdown to 2018 in Dallas, check out these fun opportunities.
AT&T Streaming Lights at Reunion Tower
Love fireworks and bright lights? You'll want to be in the vicinity of Reunion Tower on New Year's Eve. The organizers are planning to put on the only 360-degree pyrotechnic show in the central time zone. Although picnicking in Reunion Park is not encouraged, there are a number of local venues that are planning coordinated events to maximize the experience of the Streaming Lights show. Head to the Old Red Museum for Royalty at the Castle. Or attend the NYE Megaparty at Happiest Hour to get a panoramic view of downtown during the fireworks. Buy tickets for the Megaparty here or make reservations to dine at participating restaurants in the Hardwood District and receive complimentary passes for the event with your check.
Lights All Night
If you just can't wait to start partying, the Lights All Night festival is for you. On December 29th, this two-day electronic music dance party gets underway with outstanding musical performances, outrageous laser shows, wild costumes, and, likely, mounds and mounds of confetti! World renowned artist, Bassnectar is even scheduled to perform! Best of all, this festival concludes just in time for you to take a quick nap and then head out to yet another New Year's Eve event. Order your tickets for Lights All Night here.
NYE Ball 2018
The Crowne Plaza in downtown Dallas is home to the highly anticipated, annual NYE Ball Dallas. Guests can enjoy multiple deejays, bars, and three floors of fun while waiting for the countdown. Experience the 80's and 90's on the top floor with classic music and games like cornhole or oversized Jenga. The second floor will be all dressed up to fit the Vegas theme. Expect light shows, LED walls, and music in three different dance spaces. And the first floor has the biggest dance room. The Crowne Plaza's ballroom becomes a hip-hop and pop music nightclub. But if you aren't into dancing, don't worry. There is something for everyone on the first floor. Visit multiple bars, order dinner packages, or challenge a friend to beer pong. It is all set up on the first floor. The NYE Ball usually sells out so plan ahead and get your tickets here.
Studio 54 at the Texas Theatre
For a quirky and unique New Year's Eve, the legendary Texas Theatre is hosting a night of live, local music, deejays, burlesque shows, and a ball drop at midnight that is being billed as the "human ball drop". Tickets to Studio 54 at the Texas Theatre include a champagne toast (or a half bottle for VIPs) and can be reserved here.
