Times Square will hold a digital New Year’s Eve celebration to ring in 2021

Organizers of the popular Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration in New York City will go digital when revelers welcome 2021. It’s the first time in 114 years that a massive crowd will not be packed in the iconic destination to ring in the new year..

In an effort to curb the spread of coronavirus, the Times Square Alliance announced Wednesday that the festivities will now be a “virtually enhanced celebration” that will come to partygoers wherever they are.

The celebration will also feature socially-distanced live elements and a limited group of in-person honorees who will reflect the “themes, challenges and inspirations of 2020,” the Times Square Alliance said in a press release.
