New Year's Eve Fireworks
Downtown Jacksonville
Say goodbye to 2017 and ring in the New Year with a spectacular fireworks display over the St. Johns River.
Make your way down to the waterfront with friends or family before midnight to snag a great seat for the festivities. 
This year fireworks will be launched from a barge on the St. Johns River between the Hyatt and Double Tree hotels and high above the St. Johns River from the Acosta Bridge. These locations are able to be viewed from both the North and South banks in Downtown Jacksonville in addition to viewing from Brooklyn and under the Fuller Warren Bridge where the Riverside Arts Market is held.
