Prepare for a full-blown bash from the first cocktail to the last dance. Beginning with hors d'oeuvres and progressing to a gourmet dinner with live music, the evening will heat up with a live dance band taking the stage after dinner. Dance your socks off and get ready for the champagne toast, balloon drop and 2018! A great way to cap off the year and to finish out a Yosemite weekend.

Come up on Friday and enjoy a day in the great outdoors for relaxation and reflection and then come back for a night of revelry!
