Hunt Realty, AT&T partner on lighting up Reunion Tower for New Year's Eve
Posted: 15 Nov 2016 21:23
Dallas-based Hunt Realty and telecom giant AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) are collaborating on a New Year's Eve event that will light up Hunt-owned Reunion Tower in downtown Dallas.
The event, called AT&T Streaming Lights at Reunion Tower, will include a fireworks spectacle that will like up the Dallas skyline a minute before the clock strikes midnight closing out the year.
The Reunion Tower lawn and some of the nearby streets will be closed for safety, but viewing parties will be hosted at Trinity Groves, with the best vantage points on the west side of the Trinity River.

Surprised they are only now announcing this. Ever since it was cancelled last year, I've been wondering if/when they would announce the return of this show.
It's concerning that the 'best vantage points' are on the west side of the Trinity, as it is not the best area to host a large number of people and there isn't an easy way for people to get in and out of the area. I hope several areas decide to host their own watching parties that night. You'd probably get a good view from rooftop bars such as Nylo, Alamo Draughthouse, and Happiest Hour.
