New Year’s Eve fun close to home

Join your neighbors for a live broadcast of CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live from Times Square shown on a jumbo screen at Burton Chase Park. The screening begins at 7 p.m. and will conclude with a ball-drop countdown and 10-minute fireworks show at 9 p.m. Then, celebrate again on West Coast time with another countdown and fireworks show at midnight. Also, the Hermosa Beach City of Commerce is presenting a free new year’s celebration at Pier Plaza from 8PM-midnight. Lou Giovannetti and His “BIG” Big Band will be the featured performers. Inspired by Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and their swing contemporaries, Lou and his musicians perform iconic standards of the American big-band era.
