On New Year’s Eve, live music begins at 3:00 pm at Gondola Plaza and at 9:00 pm (in time for the midnight Ball Drop in New York City’s Time Square) Heavenly’s Gondola Ball Drop (a decorated gondola car) will cross above the crowd, and the most spectacular fireworks display that has ever hit the Heavenly Village, Rung in by celebrity icon, Mark McGrath of the band Sugar Ray from the top of the parking garage will be lit up like never before.
