Are you ready to say goodbye to 2021? What better way to ring in the New Year than with fireworks at one of Austin’s several fantastic New Year’s Eve events?
Bringing in the New Year wouldn’t be the same without a fireworks show, but as everyone knows, 2021 has turned our world upside down and led to the cancellation of many major events.
But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here is where you may light up your New Year’s Eve with fireworks.
New Year’s Eve Fireworks in Austin – What to Expect?
The City of Austin will ring in the New Year with a stunning fireworks display this year. The City of Austin places considerable emphasis on public safety during special events, and we’ll be extra cautious on New Year’s Eve to avoid post-holiday crowds. The park will be devoid of city-sponsored events, vendors, and entertainment. Austin’s New Year’s Eve 2021 will include solely fireworks.
When: Friday, December 31, 2021, at 10:00 p.m.
Where: Vic Mathias Shores (700 W. Riverside Dr., Austin, Texas 78704).
