With New Year’s Eve right on the horizon, it’s time to start planning how you want to ring in 2019. You can always splurge on an open bar package and dance your way into the new year, but Philly boasts a huge variety of other ways to celebrate the holiday in this comprehensive roundup of local NYE events.
Keep it classy this New Year’s Eve with a trip to the Kimmel Center to see The Philadelphia Orchestra. Their annual New Year’s Eve concert kicks off at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, December 31st and showcases a lineup of festive tunes to get you ready for the countdown to midnight. If you want a great view of the fireworks over the Delaware River, book a spot at the table for the Spirit of Philadelphia’s special NYE dinner cruise. You can enjoy dinner at 4:30 or 9:30 p.m., then enjoy a few hours of dancing before the fireworks (one display is at 6 p.m. and the second is at midnight).
