The Town Hall has reminded Monaco residents that the Christmas Village remains open until Sunday, January 7, 2018 on the Port of Monaco. “And if the magic of Christmas is already behind us, the end of year celebrations continue with the transition to the New Year that is looming,” they said.
DJs will be in charge of the musical entertainment: Manu Silvestri accompanied by a saxophonist and an entertainer, as well as Patrick Lemont, with two dancers.
There will be two focal points for the New Year’s Eve celebrations, the largest one near the ice rink and the smaller one at the foot of the Big Wheel. Finally, the highlight of the evening, a large fireworks show, will mark midnight and the revelry is expected to continue until 2:30 am.
The Christmas Village is accessible by five entrances: three on the upper part of the Boulevard Albert I, one from the North Darse and one from the South Darse. Special security checks will be in place. Light bags are recommended to simplify entry checks. Finally, the bridge of Boulevard Albert I is not accessible to the public.
