New Years revelers can once again celebrate the turn of the calendar in Old Sacramento along the river. The New Year’s Eve Sky Spectacular is a fun and free way to ring in the New Year with family, friends, or your date!

Prior to the two dazzling firework shows scheduled to light up the night sky at 9 pm and midnight, the festive community event also features live music, food and drink vendors, and a variety of street entertainment, all taking place throughout Old Sacramento and lasting from 6 pm until 12:30 am.

New Year’s Eve Sky Spectacular will offer kid-friendly programming, lively street entertainment and live music provided by the popular Radio Disney Road Crew, the ever-energetic Natomas Drumline, Nashville Recording Artist McKenna Faith and the Northern California-based funk and soul phenomenon, Joy & Madness band. In addition, the magical and electrifying “Theatre of Lights” will wrap up the holiday season with two final – and free – performances at 7 p.m. and again at 8:30 p.m. on K Street (between Front & 2nd Streets).

For the main events, the highly-anticipated firework sky concerts will hold some real surprises this year with multiple launch sites and exciting new choreography elements. Guests will enjoy two memorable yet different firework shows as part of the high-energy community celebration.  The 9 pm show, lasting just over 15 minutes, will be choreographed to this year’s biggest hits while the midnight show will bring in the New Year rocking out with classic rock favorites. This year’s shows promise to be the best yet with new multiple launching locations as well as structural based displays that will wow the senses!

Ample pre-pay parking is available in all Old Sacramento and Downtown Plaza parking garages. Or if you want to avoid the roads take transit instead. Regional Transit is offering extended service on New Year’s Eve.

In preparation for the evening activities, the Tower Bridge will be closed to vehicle traffic from 7:30 pm to 12:30 am. For additional safety, the bridge will be closed to pedestrian traffic for 15 minutes leading up to and after each of the two firework shows.
