Where is the celebration being held?
There are two events:
The Gala New Year's Eve Ball will be held inside The Antlers Hilton's Grand Ballroom. Tickets required!
The outdoor celebration (ala Time's Square) will take place on Palmer Center, directly in front of The Antlers Hilton, located at the intersection of Cascade and E. Pikes Peak in beautiful downtown Colorado Springs. Admission is free!
How do I purchase my tickets to The Gala New Year's Eve Ball?
Tickets will be available for purchase starting November 1, 2010 from Tickets West. Call 1-866-464-2626 or www.ticketswest.com or go to any King Soopers.
What about the weather?
The event will take place "snow or shine". As they do in Time's Square, revelers will have to brave the elements so please dress appropriately. As we all know, Colorado weather can change in an instant.
What is the cost for the outdoor celebration?
Admission is free, but contributions, donations, and sponsorships are respectfully requested and will be much appreciated.
What can we bring to the outdoor celebration?
Yourselves, your family, your neighbors, your friends (hell, you can even bring your enemies). Just come ready to celebrate and show the rest of the country what a Rocky Mountain High really is!
What should we not bring to the outdoor celebration?
Alcohol, drugs, fireworks, firearms, weapons of any kind, pets or other animals, and a bad disposition.
What time does the outdoor celebration start?
9:30pm (just in time to join the Times Square Celebration on the GIGANTIC SCREEN TVs provided by Ultimate Electronics)
What about parking?
As with any large event, parking can always be a challenge. Public parking garages will be open and parking is free. Many side streets will have available parking, but expect to walk several blocks to get to the event.
What are some other activities?
The Gala New Year's Eve Ball will be held inside The Antlers Hilton Hotel's Grand Ballroom. Admission requires a prepaid ticket, which includes: a cash bar Cocktail Hour from 6:00pm to 7:00pm followed by a Full Holiday Buffet (see menu below); dancing up to and past Midnight; and party favors. There will be a "Limbo" competition with prizes; "The Hokey Pokey"; "The Stroll"; and our famous "Texas Line Dance". Please call in advance to reserve a table for you and your party. Tickets are $70.00 per person and a table of ten is only $600.00! If you intend to eat elsewhere, and only want to attend The Ball, (from 9:00pm to 1:00am), tickets are only $35.00!
