The seaside town of St Ives comes to life on New Year’s Eve. St Ives has got to be one of the best places to see in the New Year, the harbour front and beach is busy with visitors and locals mainly in fancy dress, many following the Samba band Samba Celtica providing a great atmosphere before and after the midnight firework display. Although dressing up is not obligatory, almost everyone does, so you’re more likely to feel like the odd one out if you don’t! Fancy dress is all part of the fun when celebrating the New Year in St Ives.
The town is closed for traffic and the streets are busy with people of all ages seeing in the new year. You can head to the beach if the weather permits or enjoy live music and celebrations in St Ives pubs and bars. Why not join the party this year and plan a New Year’s break with Carbis Bay Holidays? Watch the video to see why New Year’s Eve in St Ives is so special. It might inspire your fancy dress ideas too!
