New Year's Eve

31/12/2010 - 1/1/2011

As you might expect from a city with an innate love of partying New Year's Eve doesn't pass by unnoticed here in BCN. Every bar and club will be throwing a special party, and for the most popular places you'll need to book your ticket in advance. If you prefer to swig a cerveza on the street (technically illegal!) then you might want to join the hordes at Placa Catalunya. Traditionally at midnight a grape is eaten with each of the twelve chimes for luck! Those who prefer a healthier take on proceedings can sign up for the Sant Silvestre 10km run (www.santsilvestre.com - deadline for submissions 27th Dec). The race kicks off at 5.30pm at the Placa del Mil.leni.
