New Year’s Eve. It’s often said that what one does on New Year’s Eve defines the next year. If that’s the case, then we already know how you can ensure your 2017 is epic.
Book a ticket, take a road trip, or go on a really long walk, to get to Colorado Springs, Colorado on or before December 31st.
Find yourself a front row seat to the spectacular fireworks display from atop one of the state’s highest peaks – Pike’s Peak.
Allow your jaw to drop, in awe. Contemplate the wonder of life and feel confident that 2017 is going to be amazing.
Keep the party going strong all night long.
“Colorado is full of amazing things to do and see, but the Pike’s Peak fireworks are unlike anything else,” remarks Laura Newman, General Manager of Garden of the Gods Club and Resort. “Gazing up at the mountains and the dazzling display all at once, it’s utterly breathtaking.”
This is your chance to have a New Year’s Eve you’ll remember for a lifetime. There are a million ways to ring in the new year, but without a doubt, watching fireworks rain down from the top of an insanely high peak has to top the list.
If you’re unable to attend the Pike’s Peak fireworks this year, don’t worry, it’s an annual event. In fact, it’s been a tradition since 1922. Back in 1922, a unique group of mountaineers got the crazy idea to climb the icy, snowy, and freezing slopes of Pike’s Peak in order to, at the stroke of midnight, ignite a glorious fireworks display to usher in the new year.
Just watching the fireworks is inspiring. Imagine, as the fireworks dance across the evening sky, you can think about how they’re being ignited by a group of people who just climbed one of the highest peaks in America, simply to help everyone else watch a mind-blowing show.
Making sure you choose a nice spot for viewing is key. On a clear night, the fireworks can be seen for hundreds of miles along the Front Range of the Colorado Rockies and eastern plains. Since this event takes place during winter, when the temperatures are mighty cold, chances are you’ll want nice, cozy surroundings, with plenty of libations to take in the show.
For the ultimate viewing experience, The Garden of the Gods Club and Resort is hosting a special New Year’s Eve dinner and party, which features front row seats to the fireworks.
The evening’s festivities will begin with a savory array of hors d’oeuvres and bar, followed by a plated three-course pre-fixe dinner, to be completed with dancing and desserts. Of course, there will be a midnight toast, but not just one – a toast for each time zone to ensure every ring of the new year is celebrated. To make your reservations for the new year’s dinner and party, visit here.
With every new year comes new possibilities, and we hope 2017 proves to be one of the best years yet!
