Are you looking to get out of the house this year on New Year’s Eve? It is a good thing you live at South Park Apartments because your home is just a ball drop away from downtown Omaha, the Old Market, and Midtown! This is where the heart of the heartland beats, folks. Go check out “Noon Year’s Eve at the Zoo” where Henry Doorly Zoo will hold a countdown and ball drop…at noon! Yes, so you can go to sleep at a bearable hour tonight and you can still enjoy some New Year’s festivities. A similar event will be held at the Durham Museum around the same time. Or if you are in it for that big midnight moment, go check out the fireworks at Gene Leahy Mall downtown. It’s the last year you will be able to attend this festival before the pedestrian mall will begin redevelopment. If you get too chilled at this event, just hop up to north downtown for some fun at the Slowdown lounge. What you can expect is the party you wished you would have thrown last year but without the clean-up and with a couple hundred more friends. Feeling too classy for such shenanigans this year? Don’t worry, you can still go from the fireworks into a warm haven at The Exchange downtown for Gatsby’s New Year’s Eve. Attendees are invited to dress their best. No matter how you decide to spend your New Year’s, your Uber ride will hardly cost a dime because you are so close to where Omaha goes to celebrate at South Park Apartments!
