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 NYE party in homage to the many great artists inspired by the town’s beauty. The theme: surrealism. Fancy dress is strongly encouraged. 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 Samba street party along las Ramblas at 7.30pm, enjoy a cabaret show in Espace Méditerranée from 8.30pm and watch the fireworks from the beach at midnight. Don’t forget, there’s a FREE BUS SERVICE too!
Find out more here.
Dancing and festivities in the heated marquis (tent, not the nobleman!) and a special pyrotechnics show at midnight. 25€ per person.
If you’re welcoming in the New Year in the mountains, be sure to check out the descente aux flambeaux (torchlit descent) at 7pm and keep warm whilst watching 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!
