It’s that time of year again! Time to party, time to reflect, time to set new goals, and time to celebrate one of the most exciting events of the year, New Year’s Eve! And this year, don’t stay at home; come out and celebrate the beginning of a brand new decade—2020. There will be lots of events throughout the city of West Palm Beach with options for everyone to have a ball.
To plan for the festivities on the big night in West Palm Beach, here are the best ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve in West Palm Beach this year.
The City of West Palm Beach does not host an annual New Year’s Eve fireworks show but features instead a variety of free family fun activities taking place in downtown and other districts.
Sandi’s nightly music and light shows on Clematis Street’s Waterfront Park is the star of the holiday season in West Palm Beach.
As the world’s only 35-foot surfin’ sand tree made up of 700-tons of sand, Sandi is at the center of many free events taking place on the Waterfront Commons in Downtown on New Year’s Eve that include:
Glow FORE It Mini Golf: Monday-Friday: 6-10 PM, Saturday-Sunday: Noon-10 PM.
Monday-Wednesday: FREE! Thursday-Sunday: $2.50/pp. This is a great place to catch the vibe, take lots of photos for social media posting and even play a glowing nine-hole mini-golf course.
SnowieVille: Monday-Friday: 6-10 PM, Saturday-Sunday: Noon-10 PM
Create your own life-sized tropical snowman or snowlady with fun mix-and-match pieces, and take a seasonal selfie to share with all your friends.
