Say goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014 at the City of Sugar Land’s New Year’s Eve on the Square celebration on Tuesday, Dec. 31, at Sugar Land Town Square.
To ensure visitors of all ages have a chance to celebrate, the evening will be divided into two segments.
A children’s celebration beginning at 7 p.m. will feature music and entertainment from Radio Disney on the main stage, a bubble artist, LED balloon artists and other great street performers roaming City Walk Drive. The celebration will close with a spectacular fireworks show at 9 pm.
The party resumes at 9:30 p.m. with the New Year’s Eve celebration where alcohol will be available for purchase to responsible adults until 1 a.m.
A brand-new, never-before-seen 3D video projection mapping show with fireworks is scheduled for this year’s midnight presentation. Illuminated statuesque “Light Beings” will seem to glide along the columns of Sugar Land City Hall while elaborate cirque jugglers and stilt walkers entertain the crowd within the plaza.
An entertainment staple in New Orleans’s French Quarter, the Dragon Masters interactive comedy team will keep everyone laughing while Flipping Out, a stunt trampoline group from Florida, will amaze the crowd with their air-catching moves.
This is a free event with parking available at both the Texas and Lonestar Garages. There will be additional parking at Mercer Stadium, 16403 Lexington Blvd., with a free shuttle service to Town Square from 6:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.
Sugar Creek Baptist Church is sponsoring this year’s Get Home Safely program –people who identify themselves as designated drivers will receive free soft drinks and water throughout the evening from any beverage station at the event. Taxi available starting at 11 p.m. can either be pre-booked or booked that night by visiting the City of Sugar Land information kiosk. All taxi fares and charges will be the responsibility of the passengers.
