Miami celebrates the New Year by watching a big ‘ol orange slowly climb up the side of a downtowm Miami hotel – the Intercontinental Miami to be specific. I’ve been lucky enough to have a birds eye view of the New Year festivities each year from my perch, and this year will be no different. In fact, this year, we will broadcast a live stream of the Downtown Miami countdown to New Year’s eve, right here on Downtown Miami News, including the fireworks over Biscayne Bay.

With lots of New Year events to be attended, don’t forget the Red Bull Soundclash featuring Ludacris and Mike Posner.
According to a NBC Miami report, the familiar smiling orange which is raised up the InterContinental Hotel has received some ‘upgrades’ and will feature an animated face during it’s ascent.
The annual partnership of Bayfront Park, the City of Miami and the InterContinental Miami Hotel has allowed this annual tradition for 25 years to continue. Each year adding various additional festivities to make the night even more special, including free yoga lessons and cultural concerts in addition to the FREE ‘Soundclash’ concert.
