Houston First presents New Year’s Eve
Houston First will host a New Year’s Eve celebration, featuring The B-52's, who will bring their timeless hits and infectious party music to the city’s fun-filled, free and family-friendly night of celebration throughout Houston’s Theater District.
Bring the kids for an early New Year’s celebration in the Family Zone on Jones Plaza filled with dancing, games, activities and costumed characters to end the year with extreme fun. Grown-ups are invited to sip bubbly and toast the end of the year in the Bubbly Garden with plenty of room for dancing and a lounge area to rest your bouffant while enjoying great views of the mainstage featuring the Tontons after the Kids Countdown followed by the “world’s greatest party band,” the B-52's. A second countdown will usher in the New Year at the stroke of midnight with a spectacular fireworks finale atop Jones Hall.
The programming at the Wortham Center will feature Broadway singalongs along with some smooth jazz and a magic show perfect for kids and adults alike. The newly renovated Alley Theatre will showcase the chronicles of David Sedaris’ experience as a worker in Macy’s SantaLand display in cult classic, The Santaland Diaries (for mature audiences only) while world-class percussionist and bandleader Pedrito Martinez is sure to have guests dancing in their seats.
