Celebrate New Years Eve Around The Parker

December 30, 2016 / editor

With only a few days left in 2016, it is now time to start getting ready for New Year’s Eve! We are lucky at The Parker to be so close to many different New Year’s Eve celebrations! Whether you want to keep it low key or get all glitzed and glammed for the night, our area has something for everyone of all ages.

Want to end 2016 and start 2017 on a healthy note? Sign up for a local race! You can participate in the 10K, 5K or the 2k fun run/walk while helping to raise money and awareness for INOVA Life with Cancer.  Another race that is happening on NYE is the Fairfax Four Miler.  Get your run on and stay afterwards for a pizza party or to check out Old Town Fairfax.  On New Year’s Day sign up for Fit DC Fresh Start 5K Walk/Run or New Year’s Resolution parkrun in College Park.

Is a dance party, champagne and a big party more your jam for NYE?  Get your sequined dress and gold tie out or even your fanciest cowboy boots on and choose from one of these closeby NYE parties at some of our favorite spots.  Starting at $20, boot scootin boogie 2016 away at Nick’s.  Your tickets will get you live entertainment, DJ, party favors and a complimentary champagne toast at midnight!  Head over to Gaylord National Resort at the National Harbor for Big Night DC. Also, over at the National Harbor, check out the newest attraction, MGM, for their New Year’s Eve celebrations!

However, if you are in need of a family-friendly NYE event, we have the best option for you right outside our doors, First Night Alexandria! Events for First Night Alexandria will begin at 10am.  Throughout the day you’ll have opportunities to take part in different activities, enjoy live entertainment and take a tour of George Washington Masonic Memorial.  Of course the best part of the night happens close to midnight with live fireworks!

No matter what you do or where you go on New Year’s Eve, we hope you have a fun and safe evening and ringing in 2017 in a joyful and happy way! Happy New Years!
