As we get ready to wave 2020 goodbye, there is no question that this New Year's Eve countdown events in Miami will be different and in a lower scale due to the pandemic. We will sure miss our iconic celebrations in Bayfront Park and Pitbull's annual countdown bash... the fantastic fireworks over Biscayne Bay and Big Orange Ball Drop have not been announced for this year, but we still get to welcome 2021 in balmy 70 degree weather... just perfect for all sorts of outdoor and socially-distanced countdown celebrations, gala cruises, rooftop bashes... all in compliance with the latest health and safety measures. So raise your glasses and let's toast for a much much better year ahead!
Many of the recurring annual events including the large scale fireworks displays in Biscayne Bay and Miami Beach have not been announced. It is possible we will see some of the smaller local and community displays like we did for the 4th of July, where you can watch from your home or vehicle, but none have been confirmed as of now, stay tuned for any announcements.
As far as New Year's events go, so far still confirmed and going ahead is the Orange Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium on January 2nd, with limited capacity and enhanced health and safety measures for fans and staff attending the game.
