Wishing you all very happy and safe New Year’s celebrations, here is a selection of what’s going on around the region.
Please check with local tourist offices to confirm that these events are going ahead.
New Year’s Eve
This year, Collioure is hosting a mega NYE party in solidarity with the Antilles devasted by Hurricane Irma. Proceeds will be donated to aid the recovery and repair works on the islands. From 6.30pm enjoy the magnificent sound and light show, Collioure Colours. Then take part in the music and festivities across the town before oohing and aahing at the infamous firework display at midnight.
Join the Brazillian street party along las Ramblas at 7.30pm, enjoy a cabaret show in Espace Méditerranée from 9pm and watch the fireworks from the beach at midnight. Don’t forget, there’s a FREE BUS SERVICE too!
Dancing and festivities in the heated marquis (tent, not the nobleman!) and a special pyrotechnics show at midnight.
If you’re welcoming in the New Year in the mountains, be sure to check out the descente aux flambeaux (torchlit descent) and keep warm whilst watchin the midnight firework display with free mulled wine or hot chocolate.
Many bars and restaurants in Perpignan will be open until the early hours, be sure to book well in advance!!
New Year’s Day
DONT FORGET THAT FIRST SWIM OF THE YEAR!
As above. First swim of the year for the slightly insane or the incredibly courageous!
