Fireworks at the Space Needle

Just because the Space Needle is currently under renovation, doesn’t mean the fireworks aren’t going to go off at midnight. This classic Seattle event is just a light rail (and monorail) ride away from Seattle Southside so you don’t have to deal with the crazy New Year’s Seattle traffic when the show is over. This is one of the largest structure launches fireworks displays in the world and it’s a sight to behold when you’re standing right under the needle!

MVP: Michael Jackson Vs Prince at the Royal Room

Even closer to Seattle Southside on the light rail, the Royal Room in Columbia City is hosting the band MVP for a night of Michael Jackson and Prince hits. The band will be playing classic tunes from the legends of pop and rock on New Year’s Eve Eve (December 30th), for a great way to rock into New Year’s weekend.
