Silverado-Franklin Ball Drop

    Improve listing Presented by

Ringing in the New Year in Deadwood is a fun way to start the year.  Deadwood always knows how to throw a party and New Years in no exception.

Everyone in town is so excited you can’t help joining in on the excitement.  There is a ball drop outside the Historic Franklin Hotel at midnight.  Even though the temperature is usually very cold, hundreds of people gather outside to welcome the new year.

Once midnight hits, the fun continues.  Many of the casinos have free champagne and party favors.  And, many places stay open all night so celebrate the new year as long as you’d like.

Some years the Hotels do fill up early, I recommend you make your reservations in advance.
