Celebrate the arrival of 2018 with the world’s biggest New Year’s celebration. It’s a chance to catch live music and other performances before and after midnight, and be part of the party the whole world is watching. Last year’s headliners were Gloria Estefan and Mariah Carey. It’s best to get to Times Square as early as possible; street closures begin during the midafternoon, and the choicest spots are usually filled by 3pm or earlier.
