Follow the action all night on our Facebook page.

It seems like just a few days ago I was on the beach, marveling at how much sand my toddler managed to capture in his diaper. Yet, here we are, watching another year pack its bags, while preparing to welcome in the next guest of our calender year.

In an effort to keep 2010 from having hard feelings over being ushered out, Pier Park has been busy creating a New Year’s Eve bash guaranteed to welcome 2011 in with a bang, while helping 2010 leave feeling like a pimp.

We’ve been lucky enough to get the New Year’s Eve schedule from the mighty forces over at Pier Park and with all the exuberance of an overly cooped up housewife, we now (dramatic statement about to happen) present it to you.

Hey Lisa!
Actually, I’m happy you asked! We’re about to post a list of events happening, not related to Pier Park. Hopefully that will give you a little more options/info! Stay tuned! (cheesy, I know, I couldn’t resist saying it)
