New Year’s Eve Fireworks
We love saying goodbye to the old year and welcoming in the new with a bang - specifically with fireworks! Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio all have free public fireworks displays to celebrate the transition from 2019 to 2020. Details are sparse in some cities, but we have faith that the shows will go on. Here’s what we know:
In Austin the celebration centers on Vic Matthias Shores, aka, Auditorium Shores on the south bank of Lady Bird Lake. The fun begins at 7:30 with fireworks scheduled for a child-friendly 10 pm. There’ll be music on stage and food trucks should you get hungry, so bring your blanket or chair and settle in for a fun Austin evening with the Peterson Brothers and headliners Kevin Russell and Shinyribs! . Details here.
Reunion Tower is the site of Dallas’ spectacular New Year’s Eve fireworks. A new, free venue for watching the show is the Party on the Plaza outside the Dallas City Hall from 7 pm to 1 am. There will be music from CASTRO and the Emerald City Elevation Band as well as 25 food trucks and places to set up chairs and blankets. The fireworks are at midnight! Details here.
The City of Houston won’t be sponsoring a New Year’s celebration with fireworks this year. Picking up the slack, at CityCentre Plaza the celebration will begin at 9:30 and with include live music from variety dance music group A Sure Thing. There will be a short (60 seconds) rooftop fireworks display at midnight, weather permitting. Details here.
The City of San Antonio is throwing quite a party to welcome in the New Year. It takes place at Alamo Street, La Villita and Hemisfair from 6 pm to midnight. You’ll find live music, carnival rides, HEB’s Celebrate Family zone, food trucks, artisans and more. While the time for the fireworks is not called out, we suspect they’re at midnight. Details here.
