See 2024 in with a BANG!!
When it comes to celebrating the new year arriving, New Year’s Eve in St Ives has a reputation for being pretty spectacular. Crowds gather down at the harbour at midnight to wave goodbye to the old year and say hello to the new one. With most people wearing fancy dress costume things are a little hectic but the display is pretty extravagant, so it’s well worth jostling through the crowds.
Here are just a few reasons why you should consider spending New Year’s Eve in St Ives this year. It’s pretty magical, take it from us…
As the clock approaches midnight, the crowd gathers around St Ives Harbour with anticipation. Friends and strangers join together, all united by the shared excitement of welcoming a brand new year. The atmosphere is electric as everyone eagerly awaits the grand finale. The St Ives New Year’s Eve fireworks display is nothing short of spectacular. The dark sky is suddenly illuminated with a breathtaking array of colors and patterns. The reflection of the fireworks on the water adds an extra layer of magic to the experience. So, if you’re looking for a unique way to ring in the new year, St Ives is the place to be. Come join the festivities and start your year with a bang!
Turn up in regular clothing and you’ll be the odd one out! It’s a tradition for adults and kids alike to pick (or make) a costume and join in the impromptu parade that swarms Fore Street and the St Ives harbour. People take it seriously because there is pride at stake!
In the past New Year’s fancy dress has included everything from Oompa Loompas to luminous jellyfish, over-sized (and over-fed) seagulls and large family groups dressed as The Incredibles!
