Get ready for a sky-high spectacle as the Space Needle prepares for its most dazzling New Year’s celebration yet! The T-Mobile New Year’s at the Needle is back with a bang, promising an unforgettable experience for both in-person and at-home viewers.

This year’s countdown to 2024 will be broadcast to Seattle, Portland, and Spokane, uniting the Pacific Northwest for a night of unprecedented festivities. The star of the show? A breathtaking display of hundreds of lighted drones, illuminating the Seattle sky in a mesmerizing dance of colors, leading up to the grand finale – the largest structurally launched firework show in North America.
