At the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve, pyrotechnic chrysanthemums, peonies and weeping willows will light up the night sky above Grand Army Plaza in the borough’s annual 20-minute fireworks display.

After the fiery excitement, produced by the Prospect Park Alliance, Borough President Markowitz will be sworn in for his second term. No drama there; Markowitz’s re-election was the surest bet since Secretariat.

The Beep’s re-election party will start at 11 pm at Grand Army Plaza with free drinks (alas, non-alcoholic cider) and a live 10-piece band, Deja Blu.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, all the Park hotline at (718) 965-8999 or visit the Web site at

There are no fireworks on the East River this year.
