2014 is right around the corner — have you planned the perfect New Year’s Eve experience?
It’s just 26 miles and a world away.
Catalina Island offers several options for New Year’s Eve, the most famous of which is the world famous Casino Ballroom. Each year for four decades the Catalina Island Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau has hosted a glamorous gala in this architectural marvel.
Complete with a live band, buffet dinner and midnight balloon drop, this New Year’s Eve party also includes spectacular views of Avalon, its picturesque harbor and, when Mother Nature cooperates, the nighttime glow from the mainland, reminding you that you had the vision to ring in the new year far from that mayhem and madness.
The New Year’s Eve Celebration is black tie optional, suit and tie required. Dinner will be served at 7, 7:30, 8 or 8:30 p.m. Live music will accompany dinner, with the 10-member Xceptional Music Rock Orchestra taking the stage at 9 and playing hits from the 1960s through today until 1 a.m.
Tickets for this fabulous fete are $195 per person and are available from the chamber of commerce, either by calling them at (310) 510-1520. For more information, please visit their website.
