LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — There will not be a big party at the Fremont Street Experience this year for New Year's Eve, but you will still have to pay if you want to be there on Dec. 31.

According to the VegasExperience.com, admission to FSE will be limited after 6 p.m. Only people who have paid $25 for a wristband will be admitted.

The Fremont Street Experience has hosted a New Year’s Eve part for many years.

Last year, more than 30,000 people attended the party. Attendees paid $45 to see special light shows, listen to live music, and participate in a New Year’s Eve countdown to midnight.

Although no bands will be playing like previous years, SlotZilla will be open and riders can purchase a special NYE package for $99.

The street will be closed at 5 p.m. for a security sweep. When it reopens, everyone will have to pass through metal detectors before being admitted.

A clear bag policy will be in place and all bags will be subject to search.

Everyone who attends will be required to wear masks. Anyone who is feeling ill will be asked to stay home.

The massive annual fireworks show on the Las Vegas Strip has also been canceled this year. However, a portion of the Strip will be closed to vehicular traffic that night.
