Colorado Spring’s New Year’s Eve ( celebration features first-ever live broadcast

New Year’s Eve will never be the same after Colorado Springs gets finished with its unique celebrations this December 31st! Move over Times Square—Colorado Springs and Cushman and Wakefield’s Palmer Center will be rocking with this year in front of the historic Antlers Hilton at Major Mandolin’s Annual Gala New Year’s Eve Ball ( Celebration will feature dinner, dancing, a giant outdoor screen, hot air balloon rise and the Mountain Time Zone’s first-ever live celebration broadcast.

Previously overlooked by the national media, the Mountain Time Zones’ event won’t be ignored after this New Year’s Eve bash! No mere ball drop like New York, rather thousands of partiers will witness the first “hot air balloon rise” along with fireworks from atop Pikes Peak in the background.

A gigantic outdoor screen will give Colorado Springs New Year’s revelers an opportunity to watch as celebrations across the country move through the time zones—New York, Chicago, Colorado Springs, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. But first, these outdoor festivities will be preceded by the Gala New Year’s Eve Ball at the Antlers Hilton. Tron Simpson of KCMN will emcee the dinner and dance with all-star performers like The Nostalgics, Giordano and Faint Hearts. But the entertainment highlight of the evening will be provided by Major Mandolin who guarantees this New Year’s gala will be the absolute best event anywhere in the Rocky Mountain time zone.

Perhaps the best part is that 100% of all net proceeds will be donated to USA Cares ( –a nonprofit organization providing financial assistance to post-9/11 military and their families. Major Mandolin encourages Colorado Springs residents to come out and celebrate not only the New Year, but especially the sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform all year long.
