Reunion Tower and Hunt Realty are collaborating with AT&T* to bring a Texas-sized New Year’s Eve event to Dallas, AT&T Streaming Lights at Reunion Tower. For the second year, the only 360-degree, panoramic fireworks spectacular in the Central time zone will light up the Dallas sky starting at 11:59 p.m. CDT on Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017.
AT&T is the presenting sponsor of the event, one of the largest shows of its kind in the Central time zone that features pyrotechnics fired from 560 feet above ground. The AT&T Streaming Lights at Reunion Tower celebratory fireworks show will run for eight minutes with a synchronized musical score. You can view the fireworks display throughout downtown Dallas or live stream it at facebook.com/reuniontower.
“We are excited to work with AT&T again this year and host another unforgettable Central time zone experience. All eyes will be on Dallas and Reunion Tower as we ring in 2018,” said Chris Kleinert, chief executive officer of Hunt Consolidated Investments.
This dazzling display will feature more than 4,000 pyrotechnic special effects with the magnificent downtown skyline as its backdrop. With AT&T’s headquarters based in Dallas, the company joined in supporting this event as a gift to the city and surrounding community.
“This is a special show for a special place,” said Fiona Carter, AT&T chief brand officer. “Supporting this event helps us celebrate the love we have for AT&T’s hometown and everyone who calls Dallas home.”
A new media partnership will bring the heart of Dallas into thousands of homes when Nexstar Media Group, Inc. in conjunction with NBC 5/KXAS-TV, introduce a live New Year’s Eve production from Saint Rocco’s at Trinity Groves.
