In case you didn’t purchase tickets to your dream destination, we’re hooking you up with a peek at all the biggest events. Those in London are giving us major FOMO since their huge celebration includes an elaborate light show, which is coordinated with the chimes of the iconic Big Ben clock along the banks of the River Thames. Whether you prefer to go club-hopping or hit up the parties, it’s sure to be a night full of excitement. The city’s three-hour extravaganza is well worth the trip. Australians were also in for a treat! People flocked to Sydney Harbour Bridge for a front row seat of the brilliant light display, complete with aerial flyovers, mini-light shows and a boat parade.
New York is definitely another place to be! For more than a century now, people have traveled to the Big Apple to watch the glittering ball drop into Times Square on NYE. Another well-known party location is New Orleans, since they have a reputation for having one of the best New Year’s Eve fireworks displays in the United States. Their 15-minute-long show features a plethora of vibrant colors over the Mississippi River and it’s certainly one of the most memorable festivities. You also don’t want to miss the amazing Fleur De Lis drop since this year will be the city’s Tricentennial Celebration!
