    New Years Eve Downtown

    New Years Eve in downtown Oranjestad, questions.....

    During the daytime I know that they "fire off" the pagara, the fireworks on the ground. At what time do they do this in the afternoon? Is it an all day, random thing? Or, do they do it at a specific time? Just wondering what would be the best time of day to walk around downtown on 12/31.

    Beyond that....we're staying at Renaissance and have no intentions of leaving the downtown area. We are open to suggestions for daytime, evening, and night.

    Thank you.....

    Last time we saw the one downtown they lit if off at around noon on the 31st - it's a one-time deal and they do have a set time. Super Food also did a huge one all around their building/parking lot after they closed on the 31st and that one was around 4pm (lasted a good 15 minutes.) If you go to any....bring ear plugs if you're going to be close.
