10 Things to Do on New Year’s Eve in Baltimore: Virtual Dance Parties; Take-out Get Down; Countdown at Noon
We’re ready to say goodbye to 2020. Will 2021 be better? We don’t know, but it will be new and that’s something.
When it comes to marking the new year, however, it remains very 2020. Baltimore city canceled New Year’s Eve fireworks, and officials are telling residents not to attend big events. Still, the event organizers of Baltimore are providing some options to soundtrack your living room dance party, and provide the menu. Plus, the kids have plenty of options for the noontime new year. Ending the year a bit early? They’ve got the right idea. Check out local New Year’s Eve events below:
It’s the final countdown before the holidays, but COVID-19 cases are raging and restrictions are at some of their most stringent. So we’re just gonna have to make due and celebrate the best we can, with drive through events, self-guided tours and virtual gatherings. Check out some events around the city and region:
