Minneapolis' annual New Year's Eve fireworks over the Mississippi may be no more, but you can still enjoy fireworks in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area this New Year's Eve.
For New Year's Eve 2013, your best best is a ski resort. Buck Hill in Burnsville has an annual New Year's Eve celebration with competitions, free glitter hairstyles, cocktails, skiing, snowboarding and tubing until midnight, and then a fireworks display at Midnight.
Then in the east metro, Afton Alps is promising a New Year's Eve extravaganza, with skiing and snowboarding until late, entertainment, music and of course, fireworks at midnight.
Perhaps the best show in the area requires somewhat of a drive to the La Crosse area. On the Minnesota-Wisconsin state line, the La Crosse Sky Rockers have an annual New Year's Eve show, with the fireworks launched from the top of Grandad's Bluff resulting in a great view for miles around.
