Grand Lake, Colorado is a quaint lake town surrounded by Rocky Mountain National Park with big mountain views of the Rockies and the Continental Divide. Grand Lake hosts a variety of year-round recreation. It is a winter wonderland to be explored during the winter months. My favorite time to visit Grand Lake is for their annual firework display on New Years Eve, where fireworks illuminate the winter sky above the beautiful lake.
Put New Years in Grand Lake, Colorado on your list of future winter vacations. It is a magical experience the whole family will love. If you happen to be in the Winter Park area this year, join the festivities and experience the 'New Years Eve Fireworks Spectacular!'

Time: Fireworks will start at midnight to ring in the New Year!
In the town of Grand Lake, fireworks can be seen from many local businesses with patios or even close to the lake front. Due to cold temperatures, it is recommended to view the fireworks from the local businesses. Fireworks may also be viewed from:
- Lake Ave
- Lake Park
- The Beach
- East Inlet Boat Launch
For a lively and festive New Years Eve celebration, check out Pancho and Lefty's Restaurant, where fireworks can also be viewed from their spectacular restaurant area. Count down to midnight with music, delicious food and good cheer at one of the best lake view restaurants in Grand Lake.
