This event is a tradition we celebrate by bringing in the “New Year” with our annual “Gala Party!” Our doors open at 7pm and guests are encouraged to arrive no later than 7:30pm. Upon arrival, party guests mix and mingle in our two fully decorated lounge areas where party favors such as hats, tiaras and everyone’s favorite boa’s will be handed out to add to the festivities.
There is only one seating all night, so you will have your designated table from the moment you arrive for the entire evening. This is the only night of the year we do not serve our regular dinner menu as Chef Aziz prepares a special, five-course meal. You will be served at your leisure, beginning with passed hors d’oeuvres in both lounges.
The dining room will also be decorated with a balloon drop ready for midnight. Our wonderful musicians and vocalists will provide live music for dancing. A themed photo booth will capture the fun and provide guests with keepsake prints to cherish all year long. As we join in the countdown with “Times Square” there will be a “Champagne Toast” for everyone…
For those looking to participate in the celebration but unable to join us in the dining room for the full gala party, Tradition’s Sunset Bar & Lounge area will also be available from 9PM for a cover charge of $25.
You’re invited to join Sea Racer Tours on a cruise as we watch the fireworks display and celebrate Fort Myers Beach’s birthday. This is a family-friendly event and all ages are welcome!
