New Year's Eve 2016 Events and Celebrations in Miami

Big Orange, Fireworks, and Pitbull's New Year Revolution

Fireworks in Miami

New Year's Eve is coming right behind the Christmas and holiday blitz and there are plenty of happenings and celebrations to help ring in the New Year.

Miami might not be Times Square, but we do have our very own "Ball Drop", fireworks and a smashing LIVE New Year's Eve event featuring Miami's global superstar Pitbull and many of today's big-name artists.

Pitbull's New Year's Revolution and the countdown to 2016 will be broadcast live on FOX direct from our fantastic setting on Bayfront Park.

In addition to a host of parties, cruises and concerts to ring in the new year, we get to welcome 2016 in balmy 70 degree weather... on the beach... what could be better?!

Check out what's on this year to welcome 2016 with a bang:

Big Orange "Ball Drop", Pitbull's New Year Revolution and Fireworks at Bayfront Park

Pitbull's New Year Revolution at Bayfront Park Miami

It looks like we will finally be hosting the largest FREE New Year's Eve party in South Florida for the Countdown to 2016!

Details are still trickling in, but it appears that this year we finally have all the pieces of the puzzle together for the smashing live event in Bayfront Park including our traditional Big Orange, the midnight Fireworks and our very own Mr 305, Pitbull, to host the mega party!

Unlike last year that Pitbull's New Year Revolution became a private event to the disappointment of thousands, this year it does look like it will happen, Bayfront park will be the place so get ready to toast 2016!

Big Orange Miami New Years

Miami's traditional celebration is Big Orange, the city's answer to New York's Ball Drop and one of America's official countdowns.

"Big Orange" is a 35-foot neon icon that is the centerpiece of the countdown to the New Year.

The celebrations begin early at Bayfront Park on New Year's Eve with the start of the Big Orange ascent.

Big Orange slowly creeps the 400 feet up the side of the InterContinental Hotel which is adjacent to the park, Big Orange reaches the top of the building at the stroke of midnight while fireworks explode all around to add that magical sparkle to our lovely Biscayne Bay.

Along with "Mr. Calle Ocho" many of today's big-name artists are expected to participate and put together a dynamite show, stay tuned for guest list, line-up and schedule of events!

When?: December 31, 2015. Details TBA, countdown one minute to midnight, fireworks at midnight.

Where?: Bayfront Park 301 N. Biscayne Blvd., Miami, FL 33132

How Much?: FREE!
