Philly welcomes the new year — and new decade — with boat parties, burlesque performances, tons of open-bar bashes and, of course, fireworks.
A can’t-miss event of the night is the annual Rivers Casino New Year’s Eve Fireworks on the Waterfront, which offers two dazzling — and free! — shows above the Delaware River at 6 p.m. and midnight.
Then, keep the party going into 2020 at parties at performance venues, restaurants and rooftop bars and more across the city.
The best (and safest) way to do New Year’s Eve in Philly is by staying over. Book the Visit Philly Overnight Hotel Package to start the new year with a wonderful winter getaway worth up to $253 (!) in perks.
