San Diego Bay, California, USA, 31 December 2014, Midnight

San Diego Bay fireworks

In San Diego, on the southern California coast and close to the border with Mexico the latin influence is more apparent than in many places, with the New Years Eve party taking on the distinctive tone of a fiesta celebration. The main public events are centred around the coastal regions of Mission Bay, where crowds gather in a variety of vantage points to jostle for the best views of the midnight fireworks that fill the sky over the bay's vast expansive skies.

The San Diego municipality know a thing or two about holding a decent fireworks display - the Independence Day Big Bay Boom is one of the biggest 4th July spectacles anywhere in the United States, so you can expect to be very well entertained for new years here.

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings

 

One of big advantages San Diego enjoys at this time of year is it's geographical location, which makes for largely clear skies and temperate temperatures, which means the party can move outdoors and the locals enthusiastically embrace this opportunity.

The main fireworks displays are centred over the Bay, and many private parties take place on yachts, which makes for a cacophony of pyrotechnics across the water. The museum ships anchored here, including the USS Midway, the largest aircraft carrier museum, and the Star of India help provide a dramatic backdrop to the fireworks.

As an added bonus this year the local San Diego bus and trolley services will be offering extended services until 2.30am, making it much easier for everyone to make their way home after the evening's revelries.

Balboa Park is also hosting a but new year's eve party this year, part of celebrations to mark it's 100th anniversary. The main event will be a New Year's Eve Concert at the Spreckels Organ Pavilion, with several live performers and including a procession along El Prado.

Away from the main event, there are plenty other offerings to choose from. The W Hotel San Diego are holding their annual Black and White party, featuring an open bar and live music provided by 3 live DJs across 3 separate venues so you're sure to find something to suit your taste.

Big club events this year are at Anthology, a huge NYE party at the Hard Rock Hotel, a Champagne Reception and Ball at Fluxx and a variety of New Years Eve party cruises, hosted by Flagship Cruises and Events. It's worth checking out offers at all the local cruise companies as they all tend to host new year events and there are some truly luxurious yachts in the area.

For a big gala event to see in 2015, the Big Night San Diego is celebrating it's 10th anniversary, with an eclectic mix of a dozen different party areas, dance floors, live bands and DJs, huge midnight countdown in an all-inclusive party at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront.
