The lit art car parade is fun. And it is fun to celebrate NYE with families. I think stuff like that is fun but then again I'm not a bar person and usually only have a couple of drinks.

It's funny...people don't want to go to Discovery Green in dowtown because it's seems "boring" for people under 12, but want to see action. Really? Do what everyone else in every other city, town and village in America does...go to a bar,club or house party.

Happy New Year.

Houston is Too Big of a city for it not to have an annual New Years event. If you're lookin for the place to be for NYE just drive 240 miles north to Downtown Dallas where there are mutiple events goin on. "Big DNYE" is our LARGEST event which draws thousands upon thousands of people.And probably the largest firework show in Texas.

for anyone who is thinking of going downtown--dont do what i did! we went there like an hour before midnight for the fireworks and countdown. what a terrible let down. i mean, i cant believe how small this fireworks show was. i can only imagine it was because they spent a lot of money on all the activities BEFORE the fireworks. so dont go there so late that the fireworks (and light show on the convention wall) is all u see.

Think thats because fire works in the city limits where againt the city ordince, so they went small just to be safe. Since this year they will be lanching them from atop Brown center it might be better.

The people saying to get in your car and drive to Austin or Dallas are obviously joking with you or don't have much clue as to what's going on .... The events, parties, etc going on in Houston and these are all similar.
