Denver residents and visitors can ring in the New Year with a celebration along the 16th Street Mall and spectacular fireworks overhead. You don't even have to stay awake until midnight to if you don't want to because the city provides two shows, one at 9 p.m. and the second at midnight. The fireworks are launched from two locations. Each show lasts about eight minutes and is synched to music from DJs lining the 16th Street Mall. On New Year's Eve, the mall is even more pedestrian-friendly than usual. Between 8 p.m. and 1 a.m. RTD Light Rail trains don't cross the mall, and the free mall shuttle stops temporarily during the fireworks shows. For variety, spend the beginning or end of the evening at Union Station's New Year's Eve Countdown Party, a short ride away on the free mall shuttle.
- Dec. 31, 9 p.m. and Midnight
