On New Year’s Eve, Philadelphia comes alive with amazing parties, sparkling fireworks and plenty of drinking revelers. Whether you are a Philly resident, here on business or visiting with your loved ones, there are loads for you to do.
At Celebrity Limo, we’ve been driving our clients to their New Year’s Eve events for over 25 years, and in that time, we’ve seen some amazing events.
That’s why we’ve put together this NYE guide to some of the best firework displays and events in Philadelphia.
SugarHouse Casino New Year’s Eve Fireworks on the Waterfront
There are two pyrotechnic shows this year at the SugarHouse Casino, one at 6pm which is perfect for taking the young family and another at midnight for everyone else. This is one of the biggest and most spectacular shows in Philadelphia and if fireworks are your thing, it’s not to be missed.
SkyGarten’s Countdown in the Sky
Is there a better place to watch the fireworks, then 51 floors up a skyscraper? SkyGarten’s Countdown in the Sky is a German-themed NYE event. Tickets include all sorts of treats including a three-hour open bar.
Pyramid Gala’s 13th Annual “Celebrity Style” New Year’s Eve Fireworks Gala
This amazing New Year’s Event is held on the 52nd floor of the BNY Mellon Center. It’s another great vantage point to see the city’s fireworks and offers up all the party treats you would expect.
One Liberty Observation Deck
Want the best view in Philly? You’ve got to get over to the One Liberty Observation Deck. Like the SugarHouse Casino, they have two events on New Year’s Eve, an earlier one aimed at families followed by a 21+ black tie event.
New Year’s Eve on The Waterfront
The Hilton Philadelphia is throwing a classic New Year’s Eve bash. It’s got all the ingredients – two firework displays, a buffet dinner and dancing in the ballroom. This is one of the classiest events in the city and not to be missed.
The Spirit of Philadelphia
Another great vantage point to see the fireworks is The Spirit Of Philadelphia. Aboard the boat, you will be treated to dinner, dancing, fireworks and live music. What more could you want?
The Battleship New Jersey
The New Year’s Eve event on The Battleship New Jersey offers another chance to see the fireworks from the water. It costs $10 per person and all proceeds go towards the restoration of the great ship.
How To Get There
Philadelphia is one of the biggest and busiest cities in the country, and on New Year’s Eve, it can be pretty crazy. That’s why you need to think about your transport before the night. At Celebrity Limo, we’ve got a huge fleet of luxury vehicles that are perfect for the occasion. Whether you need a stretch limo to take you and your friends to that black-tie event or a 57-seater luxury bus to take everyone you know to a party, we can accommodate.
