Bid 2016 a fond farewell and welcome 2017 at the Midnight in the Gardens New Year’s Eve Gala. On December 31, from 7:30pm to 1:00am, get ready for something a little bit country with a little bit of rock and roll. Mix and mingle with others who are ready to ring in the new year with live music, an open bar, deluxe party favors, lavish buffets, Champagne toast and midnight balloon drop. This is a black-tie affair, proper dress required. Tickets are $470 per couple or $240 per single person. Hotel accommodations for gala guests start at $109+tax/night. For tickets and reservations, call 888-388-8484.
