Detroit’s has grown into a bigger Motor City NYE celebration at Beacon Park.
It has always been a tradition to watch the ball drop at Campus Martius, but the NYE ball drop is moving to Beacon Park this year. “The Drop” (formally known as DTE Energy’s Motor City NYE Presented by Quicken Loans) is in need of more space, due to increased attendance. The more people at The Drop, the more people live in Detroit, right? So, the move is indicative of greater change happening in this great city. The Drop begins at 4 p.m. on December 31, 2017, and goes until 1 a.m in 2018.
“We’re proud to support this Detroit tradition and to provide the venue for party goers and families alike to celebrate a one-of-a-kind New Year’s Eve,” said Nancy Moody, vice president of Public Affairs for DTE Energy.
It’s in its eighth year and it’s the biggest so far. In celebration, thousands of LED glow sticks will be released into the crowd, which is sure to be a vibrant beginning to the year. Motown recording legend, Martha Reeves, is the musical guest for the evening, but there will be bands from 7 p.m. on, including the Weekend Comeback band and Tosha Owens! Possibly the best part of New Year’s is midnight pizza! New Year’s resolutions haven’t quite started yet, right?
This is rival to New York’s NYE ball drop, so don’t miss it. Here is where you can get tickets. Check the website for current prices and availability. They’re going fast, but it’s worth it!
