Ring in 2019 in downtown Providence! Skyline Presents One Providence New Year’s Eve at Waterplace Park!

Skyline, Mayor Jorge Elorza and the Providence Tourism Council are bringing Rhode Island’s LARGEST New Years Eve Party and Ball Drop on Monday, December 31, 2018.

“Providence is the perfect place to celebrate the New Year,” said Mayor Elorza. “Residents from across Rhode Island are welcome to join us for another memorable night in the Creative Capital complete with outdoor musical performances in our very own Waterplace Park and fireworks over the City to finish the night.”

All outdoor programming is free and open to the public in Waterplace Park beginning at 7pm. Entertainment includes a light show throughout the night, Aeromyth, an Aerosmith Tribute Band at 11pm, and fireworks and ball drop at midnight!

A family friendly tent will be available with music, food and a facepainter. Food and souvenir vendors will be outside, prices as posted by each vendor.

For those looking for indoor activities such as a special VIP experience or access to the heated family and friends tent, visit the Skyline website to purchase tickets.

Skyline at Waterplace is located at 1 Finance Way, right next to the basin in Waterplace Park.
