Have you been looking for something to ring in 2015? Well you’re in luck! You can head to downtown Coeur D’Alene to see the spectacular fireworks display that will be shown at both 9P.M. and again at 12A.M. over the lake. This extravaganza will be a good way for everyone to get together as a community!

There is also a big party going on at the Resort with the theme of “The Great Gatsby and the Roaring 20’s” that you can attend as well as the firework show. The “social hour” will begin at 6P.M., followed by the “grand dinner buffet” with your choice of either salmon or prime rib at 7P.M. which is also when the entertainment portion of the evening begins. This portion includes a DJ and the Donnie Emerson Band. Then for those 21 and over, there will also be a champagne toast at midnight to help start the new year off.

Tickets for this event will cost $75 for adults and $20 for children of ages six to twelve who can be there until 9P.M. Then, for the entertainment-only portion of the evening, which would include everything listed above minus the “social hour” and the dinner, you can pay the $15 fee at the door.

Also, for those 21 and over, there is a New Year’s Eve Lake Cruise which will have a DJ, champagne, and the best view you can find of the fireworks show. The cruise will leave the marina at 9:30P.M. to 12:15A.M. Boarding will begin at 9, and the tickets will cost $25.

There is also a New Year’s Eve Family Cruise where all ages are welcome. This cruise includes cookies and fun party favors along with going to see “Santa at the North Pole” light exhibit. Tickets cost $15 and the cruise begins boarding at 7P.M. The boat will then leave the marina at 7:30 and will run until 9:30P.M.

So with keeping all of this in mind, you should definitely consider going to check out the fun things downtown Coeur D’Alene will have to offer this New Year’s Eve! We look forward to seeing you there and hope you enjoy the festivities!
