New Year’s Eve offers Valley residents a variety of events
PHOENIX — Have you decided how you are going to ring in the New Year?
If not, there is plenty of Valley parties and celebrations to experience on New Year’s Eve as 2018 heads our way.
Four Peaks Brewing Company will present a fireworks display in Tempe near Mill Avenue and Sixth Street at midnight on Dec. 31. Organizers suggest residents view the display from Sixth Street Park.
In years past, Tempe has held block parties along Mill Avenue.
This year, there is no block party. But several local bars plan to host their own celebrations.
For example, both Dierk’s Bentleys Whiskey Row and El Hefe are hosting similar parties where one ticket gets you in both venues. The parties feature deejays and a champagne toast. Tickets start at $30.
In Scottsdale, the W Scottsdale Hotel is hosting an event called Goldmember — inspired by the Austin Powers franchise.
The 2018 package includes two tickets to the Goldmember New Year’s Eve celebration and two cans of champagne as well as a late 3 p.m. room checkout.
At Talking Stick Resort, three separate parties will be a part of the festivities. There are two ticket packages to choose from and both include dinner and entertainment.
Phoenix’s Crescent Ballroom is hosting a block party on Third and Van Buren streets. Tickets range from $19 to $25.
Or, are family outings more your style?
The Phoenix Zoo has a different take on its New Year’s Eve party. The zoo plans to bring 30 tons of snow to the area along with a bounce house for children. There will be live music, dancing and games. The event runs from 9 a.m. to noon.
Check out the Dave and Busters New Year’s Eve event where the chain is offering two ticket packages that include food and game cards.
Mesa’s Golfland Sunsplash will open at 6 p.m. for a night of unlimited video games, race cars, mini golf and laser tag. Tickets start at $21.99.
