More than 1,000 Fiddler’s Creek homeowners and guests toasted the past year’s successes and helped usher in 2013 at an elaborate New Year’s Eve Celebration.

The extravagant party, which was held in the Caxambas Restaurant and Pool Deck at The Club & Spa at Fiddler’s Creek, offered members and their guests a delicious buffet dinner, complimentary open bar and live musical entertainment. The evening culminated with everyone counting down the seconds until midnight followed by a festive fireworks display.

The New Year’s Eve Celebration is just one of several large parties provided annually for residents of the community, said Aubrey J. Ferrao, Managing Member of Fiddler’s Creek, LLC. There also are events to celebrate the Holidays, St. Patrick’s Day and Easter as well as an annual Passport Party, which treats residents to a buffet of international cuisine from the Pacific Rim, Latin America, the Caribbean and more. As the season concludes, there’s a Spring Fling Gala.

“The social events at Fiddler’s Creek provide an opportunity to bring residents together to enjoy the outstanding resort-style amenities that are currently available within the community,” Ferrao said. “Residents enjoy seeing their friends and neighbors who may have been away for several months and catching up on all their news while enjoying fine food and entertainment.”
The atmosphere was certainly festive on New Year’s Eve. Live music entertainment was provided by Final Countdown while guests mixed and mingled among close friends and family.
Along the pool area were several large banquet tables set with a buffet dinner carefully prepared by the Club & Spa Caxambus Restaurant team.

The menu featured a Gardener’s Corner with Organic Arugula Salad and Classic Tossed Caesar Salad; a Caviar and Blinis Station with American Sturgeon Caviar, Pacific Salmon Roe and Asian Tobiko Roe; a Sushi Bar with Assorted Styles of Sushi, Hand Pressed Nigiri and Makimono Rolls; Seafood including Hawaiian Style Scallop Ceviche and Jumbo Chardonnay Poached Shrimp; Main Entrees of Braised Colorado Beef Short Rib, Baked Gulf Grouper Vera Cruz, Angus Beef Prime Rib, Pan Seared Organic Free Range Pheasant and Crab and Lobster Mac n’ Cheese; and Compliments of Shitake Infused Risotto, Fingerling Potatoes and Steamed Baby Vegetables.

For those who saved room, a delicious dessert experience was offered consisting of exquisitely presented and luscious melt in your mouth dessert shots, mousse, tarts, pastries and cookies.
After dinner, the energy moved to the dance floor as hundreds of residents danced along with the band. The evening progressed with a breathtaking fireworks show and further entertainment.
