Celebrate 2017 and ring in the New Year on December 31 at Chi-Town Rising, a festive New Year’s Eve party with free fireworks viewing – and one of the biggest Chicago events of the year. Dress warmly and head to the Chicago River, where you will find free viewing areas on the north and south sides. Expect major headliners to perform at this massive event, which will be broadcast on NBC 5 and Telemundo. Along with the midnight fireworks, there will be live performances throughout the night, plus a midnight countdown and ball drop to welcome 2017. Gates to the public viewing areas at Chi-Town Rising will open at 8 pm, and seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis until capacity is reached. You’ll also find plenty of parties and viewing areas nearby at bars and restaurants – but get to the neighborhood early to make sure that you get a seat.
