BUFORD, Ga. - Dec. 17, 2017 - PRLog -- Never ones to follow the status quo, the party planners at Lanier Islands seek to offer Atlanta a little something different this New Years Eve. As the popularity of its annual New Years Eve Party has grown by leaps and bounds each year, the lakeside destination that specializes in celebrations of every imagining has really ramped things up so its guests can ring in 2018 in style. In addition to moving the celebration from the Grand Ballroom at Legacy Lodge to its largest venue at Peachtree Pointe Amphitheatre and Pavilion to accommodate more guests, New Year's Eve at Lanier Islands will include a sumptuous buffet prepared by the resort's culinary team, performances by Party Nation, open bar, dancing, party favors and shuttles to/from Legacy Lodge. Rather than merely providing a countdown or balloon drop as in year's past, Lanier Islands breaks the mold with a spectacular fireworks display over the water at the stroke of midnight.

"We are so excited about New Years Eve at Lanier Islands this year," said Missy Burgess, Director of Public Relations and Sponsorships for the Islands. "It's always a great party every year, but as word spread, we quickly saw that we were outgrowing our Grand Ballroom. When we decided to move it to Peachtree Pointe – a popular destination for weddings and receptions of up to 500 guests – we knew we had to make a special event even MORE special. Party Nation is THE party band in Atlanta, so we know they will really add to the fun factor. Add to that, great food and drink plus fireworks to end the evening, and we believe it will be one of our biggest and most memorable New Year's Eve celebrations to date."

One thing that won't change about Lanier Islands' New Year's Eve Celebration is its popular Kids NYE Party. The resort will continue to offer a separate event at Legacy Lodge for the children of overnight guests – complete with music, games, a movie, arts & crafts, kid-friendly dinner, loads of fun and midnight balloon drop – all under the watchful eye of the Islands' team of Legacy Kids counselors. As the parents return to the Lodge via shuttle following their own night of revelry at Peachtree Pointe, they can collect their kids and head off to bed at the resort's flagship hotel – proud member of the Southern Living Hotel Collection.

To make planning as simple as possible for Atlanta couples and families, Lanier Islands has designed the New Year's Eve Celebration Package. Guests who book the package can enjoy passes for two the thoroughly grown-up, utterly exclusive New Year's Eve Party at Peachtree Pointe overlooking the lake, complete with deluxe overnight accommodations at Legacy Lodge. Families will be pleased to learn that this overnight accommodation package also includes the option to add the Kid's New Year's Eve Party. The following morning, the family can regale one another with their epic tales of the night before over a sumptuous breakfast buffet at Sidney's Restaurant.
