New Year’s Eve in St. George Utah tends to be somewhat lacking in glitz and glamour in our “family-first” communities where most people stay home with the kids eating leftovers and playing card games.
But there are a few good options for those who wish to spend an evening out and about.
If you are looking for a New Year’s Eve event for the family, Fiesta Family Fun Center, located at 171 E. 1160 South (see blogpost “Lost In St. George? Navigating City Streets” if our street addresses seem strange to you). As is always the case at Fiesta Fun, you can choose from bowling, lazar tag, miniature golf, go karts, bumper boats, kiddie karts, batting cages and the arcade, all open on NYE from 10:00 a.m. But on this special Saturday, you will need to re-enter at 5 p.m. for the big annual celebration which is going to include – in addition to all the above-mentioned attractions, a disc jockey, a balloon drop for both kids and adults at midnight and lots of other fun!
Most of what people have come to expect in the way of adult entertainment on New Year’s Eve happens in nearby Mesquite, NV – about 40 miles south on the I-15 freeway. Musical groups on NYE – or over the NYE weekend – include the ultimate interactive Vegas Limit, an all request live band. Tickets will get you reserved seating, party favors, a champagne toast at midnight, dancing … and you get to call out your favorite rock and roll requests. Tickets are $15 for advance General Admission or $430 for advance table or booth seating. See their website for more information.
New Year’s Eve in Mesquite will also feature a talented and unique group of talented musicians who call themselves Dollface, the only all-girl band in Las Vegas with a show guaranteed to get you up and moving! The group, which includes a former radio personality from Florida; a private investigator, a music teacher and a horse race from California, has been in featured performances in cities stretching from Los Angeles down to Miami Florida. There is no cover or drink limit for this show. See their website for more information.
Also playing in Mesquite is the popular favorite Randy Anderson Band, a favorite country-variety band, which has been a staple in Las Vegas for many years. RAB plays the best of new and traditional country music, as well as oldies and classic rock . . . and even their own original tunes.
And, High Rise is a high energy Las Vegas-based dance band with a feel-good mix of current and retro pop, rock, dance and R&B. The band features male and female lead and harmony vocals, guitars, bass and drums.
