      Hi Lucia! We typically post a round-up of New Year’s Eve events around December 20th each year. If you’d like to start planning now, check out our guide to events from last year. You’ll have to do a little extra research as some of the events may not be happening again this year, but some are annual and will happening again this year. Here’s a link if you’d like to use it to get some ideas, just keep in mind not all events will be happening again this year and some dates/details could be different for 2018.
