Each year, around one million people head to New York City’s Times Square to ring in the new year and watch the iconic Swarovski crystal ball drop. This year, expect big name performers like Ellie Goulding, Jimmy Buffet, Whiz Kalifa, Demi Lovato, Walk the Moon and and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest. One of the city’s most famous events, it’s also recommended only for the brave. Cold temperatures are common, and there are no restrooms within the closed off streets of Times Square. For anyone hoping for a good view, plan to arrive before noon on Dec. 31.
