Schlitterbahn plans New Year’s bash

For those wanting to celebrate New Year’s in a big way, the Schlitterbahn on South Padre Island is a great place to do it. Plan to stay at the Schlitterbahn, 100 Padre Blvd., and enjoy their New Year’s special menu. Then make plans to view the fireworks being set off at midnight to celebrate the New Year’s arrival. Have a glass of champagne at midnight and then watch the fireworks displays. They will be on the bayside and the beach side of the island so they should be easy to see. After a leisurely rest, stay and see or participate in the annual New Year’s Day Polar Dip at Clayton’s Bar & Grill (register at 10 a.m. and dip at noon).

The wrong ad was inadvertently placed in the Winter Texan Times last week. It was the ad for 2014. The following is the corrected menu for festivities at the Schlitterbahn for New Year’s Even 2016.

The Schlitterbahn has a great menu planned for New Year’s Eve.  There will be hors d’oeuvres from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. They will include cascading fruits & vegetables with dipping sauce, Mexican shrimp cocktails with fresh limes, shrimp and Mahi Mahi ceviche, beef and chicken satay with dipping sauce, buffalo mozzarella wrapped in prosciutto with basil balsamic pesto drizzle, chicken roulade in puff pastry an assorted finger sandwiches.

From 10 p.m. to midnight there will be sweet and salty treats available including assorted nuts, spicy edamame, Bavarian pretzels and other treats.

The cost of this celebration with a room for up to four people is only $249. For  reservations or more information call (956) 761-1160.

Go out and enjoy a New Year’s celebration in warm South Texan!
