Local hotels, restaurants and bars offer specials for first ever New Year’s Eve Celebration in downtown Redlands
“As far as we are concerned there is no better place to welcome in the New Year, than in downtown Redlands” said Chamber President Todd Underwood, “For years we have been looking for a way to showcase Redlands hospitality industry and when we learned about the city’s amazing holiday plans we decided this was the year to ring in the New Year in Redlands.”
The Chamber of Commerce and the city of Redlands have joined forces to make the holiday experience one to be remembered. Downtown Redlands will be decked out beginning in November luring shoppers, dinners and revelers to downtown. From spectacular lighted arches announcing your arrival to picturesque State Street, to fairy lighted trees and the sounds of seasonal music radiating throughout there will be much to celebrate in Redlands.
In an impressive way to say good bye to 2017 and welcome 2018 a brilliant 8 foot Orange will be dropped at precisely midnight at the corner of Orange and State Streets. The drop will be followed by a dazzling fireworks display, making 2018 official.
While waiting for the stroke of midnight thousands will enjoy the offerings of local restaurants, bars and special promotions at local hotels. From Orange Drop Martinis to Orange chicken menu specialties Redlands will see in the new start to the New Year in style.
The Speakeasy on State has a VIP party to end all New Year’s Eve events. Tickets will include private parking and a reserved Orange Drop Viewing area, Hor’s d’oeuvres to dinner and dancing along with an all-night bar and Champagne Toast at midnight. Tickets are available on EventBrite.com.
Outside a DJ and MCs will keep the crowds entertained until the official count down. The festivities will begin at 6:00 PM. Sponsored by Mirau, Edwards, Cannon, Lewin and Tooke, The Teamsters 1932, and Brixton Capital, the 2017 New Year’s Eve Celebration in downtown Redlands will be an extravaganza talked about all year.
