Once again Downtown Denver is the place to be for two spectacular fireworks shows, one for those such as families seeking an earlier evening at 9 p.m. and a second, identical extravaganza at midnight on New Year’s Eve, December 31. Both run about 8 minutes. Best viewing is the mile-long 16th Street Mall, which is lined with outdoor cafes equipped with heat lamps for those who prefer to people watch in comfort.
While thousands stroll the Mall, costumed entertainers, DJs spinning music (from 8 p.m. to midnight), and others interact with the revelers.
Please note, between 8 p.m. and 1 a.m., RTD Light Rail trains will not cross the 16th Street Mall, and MallRide shuttles will stop temporarily during the two fireworks shows.
We have tons of other ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve and Day on the cheap.
