8 P.M. New Year's Eve, free
JUST IN its second year, the Savannah Waterfront Association’s annual “Up the Cup” New Year’s Eve countdown is quickly establishing itself as a holiday tradition.
You can keep your Times Square; Up the Cup brings a whole new meaning “raising a glass,” replacing a luminous ball with a 6-foot to-go cup that’s lofted to the top of River Street Inn as the crowd counts down to midnight.
T.C. Michaels from Bob 106.9 returns to emcee. Leading up to the giant toast, there will be on-stage giveaways, a dance party with DJ MXM, and a digital photo booth. Of course, it wouldn’t be a party in Savannah without fireworks, so stick around after the cup’s upped to get a great riverside view of the spectacle.
