The largest New Year's Eve celebration in South Florida takes place at Bayfront Park in downtown Miami. This huge street party runs from 8 pm to 12:30 am on the 31st of December and lasts until the 1st of January. Tens of thousands join the celebration. Bayfront Park's New Year's Eve is a huge dance party—one of Miami's best. Great music, great parties, cruises, and concerts in the balmy winter weather is a relaxing way to meet the coming year with friends and relatives. Miami's traditional celebration is called the "Big Orange." It is one of America's official countdowns. Huge fireworks light up the sky as soon as midnight comes.
