Our final event of the year: Light Up the NIGHT! New Year’s Eve Fireworks Show
We are doing things a little bit differently in 2021 and designing the New Year’s Eve event to attract visitors and locals to patronize our local businesses.
Instead of having thousands of people in one small location at Pier Park, people will be able to spread out along the Blvd. and enjoy the fireworks from multiple locations.
Local businesses will take the place of the many vendors that were crowded into Pier Park. While we will provide a fabulous fireworks show, we will encourage people to patronize our businesses for their food, beverages, and entertainment.
This will be a community-based celebration, offering a true taste of St. Augustine Beach. Whether the plan is a weekend stay at one of our local hotels or are a local resident looking for a wonderful night out with family or friends – the Boulevard will offer something for everyone.
We invite everyone to participate in the festivities, so join us this holiday season and let’s Light Up the
