Celebrate at the Space Needle.

Party from home or in person as you watch KingTV LIVE ring in the New Year 2018 at the Space Needle’s 33rd annual fireworks extravaganza. The main celebration begins with the station’s pre-party fun at 11:35PM, leading up to the countdown to 2018, ending with spectacular fireworks set against the city’s most iconic landmark. 

Start celebrating early and stay late at MoPOP (Museum of Popular Culture) under the Space Needle. This year’s 15th Annual INDULGENCE New Year’s Eve Bash offers four different entertainment venues, all for one price, throughout MoPop. Listen to comedy programs and LIVE bands while you dance your way into 2018.

But better hurry! Tickets sell out every year and prices increase as the day of the big event draws closer.

Take the Polar Bear Plunge.

This takes "cool ways to ring in the New Year" to a whole new level. Not for the faint of heart, or for those who prefer lounging in front of the fireplace at home, the city’s 16th Annual Polar Bear Plunge is set for 12 noon on Jan. 1st 2018 at Matthews Beach in Northeast Seattle. 

Take the plunge in the spirit of renewal and rejuvenation as you launch into a New Year. Or show up to offer support by handing out warm towels and hot chocolate to those brave souls willing to dunk into the frigid waters of Lake Washington.

Visit Parkways, Seattle Parks & Recreation for more information.

Reserve a New Year's Eve Hotel Package.

Ring in the New Year with a luxury or family-friendly package at any one of several local hotels. Stay for the night or the weekend and enjoy discounts and amenities such as countdown parties, festive dining, midnight toast, valet parking, complimentary breakfast and late checkouts. 

While availability of New Year’s Eve packages at hotels with views of the Space Needle may be limited at this late date, it pays to contact hotels directly in case of cancellations. With over 13,265 hotel rooms available in downtown Seattle alone, you’re bound to find one to your liking.
