New Years Trivia and Local Events!
For us at unWined New Years is a time for friends and families to spend time together, remember the past, and celebrate new beginnings. This is a world-wide tradition and is looked at in many different ways. It’s fun, it’s humble, it’s loud, it’s quiet, it’s celebratory, and it looks really different throughout the world! This is what makes it such an interesting time.
New Years also gives us the opportunity to venture out and about in Denver and find interesting local events that often only happen once a year. Whether you are looking to get dressed up, hit the dance floor, get a bite to eat, grab a drink and glass of wine, or find something different to do, there are options out there!
Throughout The World
A History of the New York New Year’s Eve Ball: “Revelers began celebrating New Year’s Eve in Times Square as early as 1904, but it was in 1907 that the New Year’s Eve Ball made its maiden descent from the flagpole atop One Times Square.” Read the rest of the interesting history and find out more about where this tradition began on The Official Site for Times Square!
