Motor City NYE Drop

After seven years at Campus Martius Park, Motor City NYE Drop has now moved to the new Beacon Park. While it may be a new location, expect all of the things that have made the Drop a blast in past years: fire pits, live music, a kid’s zone, and, of course, the ceremonial countdown to the new year with the lowering of a giant, light-up “D.” (For those with early bedtimes, there will also be an earlier “Kids’ Drop” at 6:30 p.m.) The event is free, but a VIP Grand Celebration Party Pavilion offers shelter from the cold along with bars, reserved viewing area, midnight pizza, balloon drops, and more; tickets start at $99.
