It’s that time of year again – though we’re all being swept up in the fun and excitement of the Christmas season, in a few short weeks it will be time to switch the calendars and head into 2019. We don’t know about you, but our whole team is certainly excited for the prospects of what the next 365 days will bring – first things first, it’s time to welcome the new year the right way. Join Alexander Toyota on December 31 at some of the coolest New Year’s Eve 2019 Celebrations in Yuma AZ!
Every city has their own local flavor which separates them from everywhere else on the map – in Yuma’s case, it’s iceberg lettuce, as the area produces about 90% of the lettuce for the entire country this time of year. To commemorate this, as well as bring the whole community together for some fun as we shift into the new year, you’re all invited down to Main Street for our own little spin on the classic Times Square ball drop, taking place for the first time ever!
Kicking off at 8 pm, this giant illuminated iceberg lettuce head will be dropped twice, once at 10 pm to signify the new year’s arrival in the Eastern Time Zone, and again at midnight to officially welcome 2019 here in Yuma. Plus, with drink specials, live entertainment, dancing and much more to round out the night, it’s sure to be an event that will be memorable and fun for all Yuma residents!
If you and the kids are looking for a more family-friendly environment to bring in the new year, you’re welcome to the Yuma Civic Center for its annual New Year’s Eve Family Fun Night. Pinatas, music, food, photo booths, plenty of giveaways and more will all be on the schedule, and there’s even a costume contest taking place with plenty of prizes. It’s sure to be an awesome experience for both parents and youths!
