Riverside celebrates NYE locally

December 21, 2018 by  

Riverside families can celebrate the new year together at a free New Year’s Eve Celebration here in town.

The three-hour event will take place early in the evening. The fun will include pinatas, music and activities. A confetti countdown celebration will be at 9 pm. Activities will include a gift box bouncer, LED seesaw, LED swings, trackless train rides, a Ferris wheel and carousel. Families can enjoy a ride through the venue in horse-drawn carriages. The Zavalas will be performing on the Entertainment Stage at Main and 10th Streets.

Later in the evening, the older crowd can party the night away at the New Year’s Eve at the 2019 New Year’s Eve 80’s Party featuring the Reflexx. This band will play music from the 80’s including those songs made famous by INXS, Depeche Mode and Duran Duran. A live DJ will be playing tunes for guests to dance the night away. A balloon drop and champagne toast will greet the new year at midnight.

Photo opts will be available for couples to take pictures as mementoes of the occasion. Pictures taken at these NYE events can be taken to local print shops as the first month additions to family calendars.

The Festival of Lights Family Friendly NYE Celebration will be in Riverside Main Library Plaza, 3581 Mission Inn Avenue from 6 pm until 9 December 31st.

The New Year’s Eve 80s Party will be at Romano’s Concert Lounge, 3557 University Avenue starting at 8 pm.
