Celebrate With the Ball Drop

Signifying the passage of time, the ball drop is a long-standing tradition of transition. Ring in the new year and watch the 60-foot ball drop from the enchanting Mission Revival and Spanish Colonial architecture and Art Deco ceilings of Union Station. A fresh start, maybe a kiss and a feeling of revitalization needed by many—what better way to symbolize that than with an NYE ball drop? “We’re hoping Prohibition NYE brings a sense of normalcy back to our lives,” says McCullough. “We are really looking forward to toasting the great year ahead.”


Burlesque? Oh, Yes!
