SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Organizers say the Scottsdale Ultimate Block Party is one of the biggest gatherings in the Valley. Thousands of people are expected to attend the New Year's Eve event which has been held for 10 years.
Craftsman Court, between 3rd and 5th Avenues, will be closed to street traffic. Two bars, a stage, and a large viewing monitor will be set up outside. Revelers will be able to drink in that area and bar-hop around three venues, including Dos Gringos, Blitz Sportsbar, and Rockbar.
There will be 10 live bands, DJs, and a midnight fireworks show. Champagne will be available to purchase for a midnight toast, said Doug McLenithan, Dos Gringos General Manager.
Roberta Anderson, an event spokeswoman, called it a "Vegas-style" event.
The party kicks off at 5 p.m. Tickets are $35 pre-sale. You can purchase them at ScottsdaleUltimateBlockParty.com . You must be 21 or older.
Dress code is casual or dressy, McLenithan said.
