Come out and celebrate this New Year’s Eve in downtown Gainesville. The City of Gainesville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department is expanding your downtown New Year’s Eve experience with a grand celebration. All festivities are free and open to the public, so there is something for everyone this year!
**The evening begins at Depot Park**
At 5 p.m., bring blankets and chairs and find a spot in the park to enjoy the last sunset of 2019 while a DJ hosts a family-friendly dance party on The Hill.
At 6:30 p.m., the fun continues with “Sparks in the Park,” a musically choreographed fireworks show over the main pond.
Following the fireworks display, guests will be guided by a glowing rainbow of lights through downtown to enjoy dinner, drinks, festivities and all that downtown has to offer.
Later, the Downtown Countdown begins at 9 p.m., and continues until midnight in Bo Diddley Plaza
