The holiday season is quickly approaching. Have you thought about your New Year’s Eve plans? Here are five places to celebrate the end of 2019 in Western New York.
If You Are a Fan of the Traditional Ball Drop
After Times Square in New York City, Buffalo hosts the second–largest New Year’s Eve ball drop in the United States! The annual event takes place at the Electric Tower in downtown’s Roosevelt Plaza. Despite typically chilly temperatures, over 40,000 hardy Buffalonians usually venture out to join the festivities.
If You Are Looking for Something Trendy
Maybe you would like to see Buffalo’s ball drop, but you don’t want to brave the weather. Big Ditch Brewing Company offers the perfect solution. Ring in 2020 with craft beer, a full-service menu, and an unobstructed indoor view of the Electric Tower ball drop and fireworks show. Check Big Ditch’s event calendar for more information.
If You Want to Attend a Fancy Party
Celebrate the New Year in style at the Statler City Ice Ball. This event includes a premium open bar, hors d’oeuvres and dinner entrees, a champagne toast, live music, and sit-down dining at one of Western New York’s premier event destinations. Tickets sell out quickly, so be sure to reserve your spot in advance.
If You Are Searching for a Family-Friendly Event
First Night Buffalo is a wonderful option for families who would like to spend New Year’s Eve with their children. The event includes carnival rides, bounce houses, live shows, and a 9:45 p.m. balloon drop inside the Buffalo Convention Center. Tickets go on sale in early December.
If You Are Longing for a Quiet Evening Out
Take a short journey to the southtowns and spend December 31st at the historic Roycroft Inn in East Aurora, New York.
