Looking to welcome 2018 with a spark of excitement? Take your family to Coney Island to celebrate New Year’s Day! New Yorkers love to come and take the “Polar Bear Plunge,” a dive into the ice-cold waters of the Atlantic for the first swim of the year. This Brooklyn tradition draws a great crowd, with amazing ways to usher in the new year, including Sideshows by the Seashore and Magic At Coney!!! at the Coney Island Museum!
Award-winning magician Gary Dreifus has been dazzling the audience for over four decades. For this unique occasion, he will hit the spotlight with a cast of talented performers, including mentalists, escape artists, illusionists, and more. There will be two very special shows tailored to this unique day – at Noon and 3 PM, on January 1, 2018.
