Downtown Long Beach will host a massive celebration this New Year’s Eve with two incredible events beginning at 5 p.m.  Just announced: live music at the Pine Avenue Celebration will feature Long Beach Rock'n'Roll Band Rival Sons, and eight piece Southern California band The Mowgli's.

Beginning at 5 p.m., Downtown’s waterfront amphitheatre will come alive with a flurry of activities. Live bands The Lonely Hearts Club Band and Yacht Rock Revue will energize the crowds.  And children's activities including face painting, balloon artists and a trackless train will keep the whole family entertained. At 9 p.m., the sky will light up for an East Coast countdown with a ten minute fireworks spectacular from Rainbow Harbor’s lighthouse peninsula, sponsored by Gladstones Long Beach. Don’t miss the final hour of live music as families welcome the New Year together.
