New Year’s Eve is a time to reflect on the past year and get excited for the wonders and challenges of the New Year. The Savannah area offers a variety of ways to celebrate the New Year from attending parties at hotels to ringing in the New Year with fireworks and thousands of your closest friends! Below is a list of just a few of the activities taking place on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day in the Savannah area:
Up the Cup New Year’s Eve Celebration
Savannah’s biggest New Year’s Eve celebration is at Rousakis Plaza on River Street in historic downtown Savannah. Savannah Waterfront Association presents the third annual Up the Cup New Year’s Eve Celebration. The festivities include free entertainment and watching the “non-traditional 6 foot to-go cup” drop at midnight! Afterwards, there is a huge fireworks display over the Savannah River.
Savannah’s City Market will be hosting an outdoor street party to ring in the New Year. The entertainment starts at 9pm and lasts until 1am at the Wild Wig Café Stage near Ellis Square. No tickets or reservations are needed. However, if you plan on celebrating at the restaurants in the area, you will need to make reservations.
New Year’s Eve at Westin Savannah
Treat yourself to a New Year’s Celebration at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort and Spa. There are two events: The Night at Aqua Star Seafood Kitchen, which is family friendly and The Celebration in the Harbor Ballroom. Both events will have live entertainment, party favors, a toast at midnight and more.
Savannah River Cruise New Year’s Celebrations
The Savannah Riverboat Cruises are offering special packages to celebrate the New Year in style. They offer a dinner cruise (perfect for families), party cruise to ring in the New Year or a full-on formal New Year’s Eve gala.
Tybee Island Fireworks
Tybee Island rings in 2016 with a spectacular fireworks display set off from Tybee Pier. The display is the largest New Year’s Eve fireworks display in the Southeastern United States. The fireworks can be viewed from the beach or any of the many beachfront restaurants. The next day, take the plunge into the Atlanta Ocean at the 16th Annual Tybee Polar Bear Plunge. All proceeds going to the Tybee Post Theater.
