New Year's Eve FireworksCelebrate the coming of 2013 with over 200,000 enthusiastic spectators along the beautiful San Francisco waterfront. At the exact stroke of midnight, the entire sky lights up with a visual treat over the bay featuring a dazzling pyrotechnic display. Each year the show gets better and better, and 2013 is sure to be the most impressive yet with thousands of exploding rockets in all shapes and sizes that will captivate the entire city and leave you in awe.
One of the finest viewing points can be found near the Hotel Griffon, along the Embarcadero, just south of the historic Ferry Building, so get there early to stake out a good spot. If you’re standing near Pier 14, you’ll also hear a coordinated music soundtrack for the unforgettable 15-minute display that’s worth staying up for. There’s no better way to start your year off than with this annual San Francisco New Year tradition.
