New Year’s Eve is looking bright in St. Pete. The city announced it will hold its annual fireworks show to ring in the New Year, complete with an all-night party on the St. Pete Pier. The fireworks will, of course, be visible from anywhere along St. Pete’s downtown waterfront, beginning at 12 am on January 1.
NYE on The Pier kicks off at 8 pm in Spa Beach Park on December 31, a free celebration open to all. The electric party features DJs, a giant disco ball, an LED wall and more to light up the party all night. There will also be food trucks, full bars, games, and a champagne bar to toast the New Year.
The fireworks show will last approximately 20 minutes, launching from Vinoy Park and visible throughout the area. NYE on The Pier runs from 8 pm – 1 am. Parking in the area is likely to be scarce, so be sure to check out our guide to parking downtown, or take the free SunRunner to downtown.
In fact, all PSTA routes on New Year’s Eve are free, with select routes running until 1 am. Learn more here. And if fireworks aren’t your thing (or you just need something to do until midnight) check out our guide to the best New Year’s Eve events in the area.
