Gloworama New Years Eve
Theres only one official New Years Eve party in Houston and its the Gloworama New Years Eve bash. The family fun starts off at 7 p.m. with live music and ice skating at Discovery Green. At 9:30 p.m. theres a parade with illuminated Art Cars, scooters, bikes and other mobile contraptions gliding along the streets around the park. (Oh, expect a few fireballs and pyrotechnics.) And at 11:30 p.m. its the Big Glow, with fireworks and a 3D lightshow lighting up the downtown sky. The fun is free for everyone, but if you want VIP seats and treatment, opt for the pre-Glow party inside the George R. Brown Convention Center. 7 p.m. to 12:15 a.m. Discovery Green, 1500 McKinney. For information, call 713-853-8000 or visit www.discoverygreen.com. Free to $150.
