Usher in the new year in your shorts and slippers? How great is that! The new year is also a big celebration on Curacao and in the supermarkets and on the road you can just get your deep fried dougnut balls (typical dutch delicacy). Many fireworks shows take place in the run-up to New Year's Eve and during New Year's Eve. Many companies organize so-called pagara parties (millions of hits) in order to close the new year well with staff and customers. But there is also a lot of beautiful decorative fireworks. Many people look for a place in the neighborhood, take a filled cool box with them and then enjoy the great fireworks going up in the air.
A much visited pagara party is the one in Pietermaai. In the city there are all activities starting at 12:00. Around 3 p.m. the million dollar hit is set at no less than 1.5 km in length.
On December 31, thousands of people gather on the pontoon bridge and Brionplein to picnic, party, enjoy spectacular fireworks shows and count down to the new year.
