T-Mobile New Year's at the Needle

The celebration flew to new heights this year as drones joined the iconic fireworks display for a bigger, brighter, and bolder show to ring in 2023!

The Space Needle, which has stood as a symbol of possibility and technology for 60 years since debuting for the Century 21 World’s Fair, showcased its spirit with a brand-new addition to T-Mobile New Year’s at the Needle.

As the clock struck midnight to ring in 2023, the beloved New Year’s celebration featured drone light formations in the Seattle skies that added more expression and color to one of the world’s largest structurally-launched firework displays.

The captivating drone formations — with 200 drones designed to integrate with the fireworks and light displays being launched and projected off of the Space Needle — will flew between 200 and 400 feet above ground, directly north of the Space Needle.

Thank you T-Mobile for sponsoring the West Coast's biggest New Year's celebration for TEN years in a row!
