Top Overall: Party of the Year at Kakaako Park
Dec. 31, 6 p.m.-2 a.m. at Kakaako Waterfront Park
— Hawaii’s largest New Year’s Eve party has something for everyone, and enough spectacle that it easily lands at the top of the list. With eight areas of live bands like Fiji, Rebel Souljahz, Mana'o Company and others, Djs and entertainment, including headliners LAZRTAG and Toma, plus this month's Eat the Street block party in the front parking lot, a giant Ferris wheel courtesy of EK Fernandez, fireworks every hour from 9 p.m. until the grand finale at midnight, the Red Bull skydivers doing an aerial pyrotechnics display... the main problem you'll have is trying to figure out what to do first.
All ages; children 10 & under get in for free, general admission is $25 and includes access to all stages. VIP for 21 & over is $75. Buy tickets at ticketmaster.com, www.nyehawaii.com.
