New year, new festival? With hundreds of festivals and celebrations to ring in the new year, you could go to a different one each year. Here are our top New Year's Eve destinations and celebrations! Watching the ball drop from the iconic Times Square in NYC is a classic tradition, and tens of thousands of people flock to the city each year to see it happen. Perhaps one of the biggest New Year's Eve party of all time is America's Party, when the entire Las Vegas Strip is shut down to traffic, becoming one giant block party to ring in the new year. Not to mention, world-class DJ's spin in the hottest nightclubs to keep you up and dancing all night long. Edinburgh's Hogmanay, a multi-day festival in Edinburgh, Scotland, is the world's premier New Year celebration, complete with live music, great food, and spectacular fireworks. Hogmanay, the Scots word for the last day of the year, is a NYE festival deeply rooted in cultural Norse and Gaelic traditions. Get on the guest list for one of LA's exclusive NYE celebrations, from glamorous rooftop bars to poppin' nightclubs. With a music scene bigger than the boldest firework, it makes sense so many NYE festivals hover around the city's edges, including Together As One, Insomniac's Countdown, Infinity NYE, and OMFG NYE. Some of the best New Year parties are in Los Angeles. The warm weather of Brazil lures in millions of people every year for Rio Réveillon in Rio de Janeiro. Family and friends dress in all white, in honor of Iemanjá, the goddess of the sea, and gather on Copacabana Beach to ring in the new year. Once the clock strikes midnight, the sky explodes with one of the world's largest fireworks show, and this family affair turns into Brazil's wildest New Year's Eve party! Where will you be spending New Year's Eve?
