Puerto Rico Celebra 2008

Happy New Year!For the third year in a row, San Juan will celebrate with the Univision world the "Despedida de Año". As part of their New Year's Eve celebration coverage, Univision will broadcast live the end of the year celebrations from San Juan, New York, and Acapulco.

The San Juan celebration will take place at the facilities of the Puerto Rico Convention Center and will offer a wide range of music, fun, and entertainment. The Puerto Rico Tourism Company is hosting the celebration with the hopes of marketing Puerto Rico to the world.

The festivities will start at 7:00 p.m. and will feature music by El Gran Combo, LimiT-21, Alexis & Fido, Plena Libre, and Victoria Sanabria. In addition, there will be a live transmission from special invited guest Don Omar. And don't think that you need to find babysitters for the kids. There will be an area of games for children. To keep the festivities going, there will be kiosks of food and drinks available outside the Convention Center. To usher in the new year there will be a fireworks display at 12:00 a.m.

Transportation will be provided from the Sagrado Corazón Tren Urbano Station and those that want to brave the traffic and try to find a parking spot, parking will be available for $3.00. Those who would rather enjoy the party from the comfort of their own couch can watch a live transmission from WSTE-Tele starting at 9:00 p.m.
