Pier Park New Year’s Eve Bash a Success [PICS]

For the third year in a row, Pier Park’s New Year’s Eve party was the largest on the beach.  With a family friendly atmosphere, tons of excellent live entertainment, 7,000 beach balls, loads of fireworks and a warm night, it’s no wonder this was the place to be.

The History of the New Year’s Resolution

Out of nowhere today, I was hit with the realization that this time last year I was in the middle of having a bonafide meltdown, partially freaked out over just giving birth to our first baby and partially zombiefied from the lack of sleep (see aforementioned newborn).  Adding to the hormonal mayhem, my Mom had just been admitted into Hospice and within the next 10 days, would pass away.

Needless to say, I was emotionally confused over entering 2010 and looking back, I think the one resolution I made, was to just put my head down, and keep moving towards a better tomorrow.

Now that  2010  is getting hit with the door on it’s numerical butt, I’m overjoyed with the possibilities of 2011. My renewed sense of enthusiasm is heightened with the knowledge that last year is about to become a fading light and finally, FINALLY, I can see what the whole New Year’s Eve Resolution *hubaloo is all about.

It’s about leaving the old behind and turning to face a new day with the world giving you a chance to leave the old, the ugly and the out-dated, behind.

Yet, being someone who’s obsessed with traditions, history and “where it all began” concepts, I’ve begun to wonder about the story behind the New Year’s traditions that we now just accept as normal.

Pier Park's New Year's Eve Headlining Band: Gloriana

The 2010 New Year’s Eve bash at Pier Park wouldn’t be complete without a full musical line up. This year, the headlining act is coming straight out of Nashville,  where the four part harmonies of Gloriana are already being considered Country’s next big thing.  Gloriana’s sound is comprised of 2 parts femininity and 2 parts male ferocity, resulting in a flawlessly energetic sound that has some comparing Gloriana to the musical styling reminiscent of  Fleetwood Mac.

Encore Presentation, Pier Park Beach Ball Drop – Extended Version

The Beach Ball Drop was awesome, and Pier Park did a great job in executing this first of many New Year’s Eve events.

The production and editing on my part was lengthy, time consuming, and exhausting, to say the least, but it was fun, very fun. The first version of  the video was just over 7 minutes, but I decided to edit it down to around 5 minutes so as to prevent it from seeming to drag on.  However, the first video was so successful and so “talked about”, I decided to release the longer 7 minute version to feature longer interviews and more footage.

Enjoy, and thanks to Pier Park for sponsoring the production of this video!
