You’ve got places to be. Don’t forget that last-minute New Year’s Eve planners pay the price – entry fees and tickets jump as that big day approaches. Be sure to get yours early and party like you mean it!Big D NYE FireworksBig D NYE is one of the largest and most dynamic New Year’s Eve celebrations west of New York City. Music, food, and fireworks are all part of what draw spectators to Big D NYE.
