So you donâ€™t feel like paying to celebrate the coming of the New Year? I cannot blame you. I would rather have fun for FREE than to pay a hundred bucks or more to party. Good for us then, that there are other options for New Yearâ€™s Eve.
How about going to Citywalk at 100 Universal City Plaza in Universal City, California on the 31st of December? They are holding what is dubbed to be the largest FREE New Yearâ€™s Eve party in Los Angeles!!! This year, they are going to outdo themselves by lining up two bands to welcome year 2009. The Cinema Plaza Stage will be featuring FAST TIMES while the Globe Fountain Stage will be featuring 80s Rewind. Having these bands will be sure to give you a great party on New Yearâ€™s Eve. Of course, there will be fireworks that night â€“ and double the fun, too, as they will be set of at each end of the street.
