Typically, Las Vegas is the place for New Year’s events. The strip is packed full of people and bustling with activities, and fireworks are popping off in the sky. Every New Year’s is a spectacle that the whole watches. As the years go by, Las Vegas New Year’s celebrations became more innovative and exciting.

COVID-19 has ultimately foiled all plans, and authorities had to call off all mass gatherings in Las Vegas. Last year, 300,000 people attended the New Year’s fireworks and celebrations. This year, the event expected many more visitors. Fortunately, the plans aren’t entirely canceled, and you can still tune in for some virtual feel-good New Year’s fireworks. Read on to find out how you can join in!

Virtual New Year’s Eve Show in Las Vegas

The fact that there are no New Year’s celebrations in Las Vegas is truly an anomaly. However, 2020 has been a strange year in general. Local authorities called off all New Year’s celebrations back in October, citing the pandemic’s spread as a health and safety issue. This precaution is needed.

However, that doesn’t dampen the mood of those who love to visit Las Vegas for the holidays. The president of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, Steve Hill, said in a press release about the celebration:

Celebrating New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas is a bucket list item and a long-held tradition.

The LVCVA has decided to host a virtual celebration to uphold the tradition. The unique party hopes to remedy that by providing a little bit of entertainment. 

The live stream will include a brilliant and flashy fireworks display followed by a DJ set and will last around 15 to 20 minutes. Check out the LVCVA’s website, Youtube, and Facebook to access the event.

This New Year’s, stay safe at home and enjoy some celebrations while bundled up with your loved ones. It’s not entirely safe to go outside yet, so to help stop the spread of the virus, tune into LVCVA’s fireworks to help scratch the itch you may have for going out for celebrations.
