New Year's Eve on the Emerald Coast
New Year’s Eve is synonymous with fireworks, and in most of the country people are freezing while standing outside to watch them. You don’t have to be one of those people! The Emerald Coast offers breathtaking firework shows over the reflective waters of the Gulf, which are sure to keep everyone warm.
For something a little different this year, sign up for Blingin' in the New Year 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run, a glow run at 6:00 p.m. in Downtown Fort Walton Beach. You'll get to keep the bling to help you keep glowing into the new year. The run will be followed by a party at the Landing that will include live entertainment, specials at the local restaurants, and waterfront fireworks at midnight.
If you're traveling with children you'll want to check out Lulu's 3rd Annual Noon Year's Eve in Destin. Starting at 10:00 a.m. there will be arts and crafts, a sandcastle building contest, and family-friendly music. The event will end with a huge beach ball drop at noon while the kids make their own "fireworks" by stomping on bubble wrap.
If you want to avoid the crowds, plan a more intimate fireworks viewing by having dinner at your beachfront condo rental with family and friends. At the stroke of midnight, you’ll be able to view the fireworks from your balcony while making a champagne toast with your loved ones.
Don't get stuck in the cold weather! Make your reservation to welcome 2018 on the Emerald Coast today.
