The City of Temecula once again brings the spirit of Times Square to our fine community with its 6th Annual Grape Drop Countdown and New Year’s Eve Bash.

The City has constructed a 12 foot by 7 foot illuminated bunch of grapes, which will ascend from the top of the clock tower (Doc Brown?) as the excited crowd counts down to 2015. Drops are held at both east and west coast midnights to accommodate the younger revelers who may need to head to bed a little early.

The family fun starts at 5:00 pm with live concerts from Entouraj, Valley Winds, Resonate and Safety Orange. Additional activities include hat making, magic shows, a party jump and balloon art by Old Town favorite, Dynamite Dave. Need to keep warm in between drops? There are even board games inside the civic center because nothing says a family celebration like Twister!

Is 5:00 pm even too late for your kiddo?

Temecula’s award-winning Children’s Museum, known as Pennypickle’s Workshop, will be hosting New Year’s Eve at noon, which is a very special celebration for the littlest party-goers to ring in the new year around lunchtime. Very little information is currently available, so make sure you check back with for more information as space is limited.

As We Say Goodbye to 2014…

Hopefully we have helped you decide exactly how you will welcome in 2015 and, with dress codes ranging from formal attire to cowboy boots to even Pearl Jam t-shirts with a flannel, you really can’t go wrong with Temecula at New Year’s Eve.

Whatever you choose to do, please designate a driver and all of us here at What’s Up? Temecula wish you a safe and very Happy New Year!
