New Year’s fireworks at Beach House

The skies will light up when the Beach House welcomes 2018 with fireworks over the Gulf.

BRADENTON BEACH – Once again, the Beach House restaurant, 200 Gulf Drive, will ring in the New Year with a fireworks show, weather permitting, at midnight.

Instead of having a party with a special menu, this year’s Beach House guests will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis with the regular menu. This year the remodeled Beach House will offer a new deck, outside bar and sunken lounge area for the enjoyment of customers.

Longtime favorite musician and DJ Chuck Caudill will play and take requests from 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Complimentary valet parking is available for restaurant patrons.

Of course there will be plenty of room on the beach to observe the fireworks. Remember, no personal fireworks, pets or alcohol will be allowed on the beach and police will beef up their presence for the safety of the crowds.

Parking will be available at the public beaches. To avoid parking hassles, take the free Island trolley or Monkey Bus. Manatee County Area Transit will run the trolley until 1 a.m. on Jan. 1.
