There is no better place to welcome the New Year with friends and family than at the “2017 Year of Love” Festival this Saturday night at Ypao Beach Park in Tumon!

Starting at 6:00pm on New Year’s Eve, everyone is invited to enjoy live entertainment, food, drinks, and family-friendly activities at the Tumon Night Market before taking in a spectacular fireworks display that is set to light up the bay at the stroke of midnight. The fireworks show will be synchronized to a special musical presentation as Guam welcomes 2017 as the Year of Love.

Among the highlighted entertainment slated to perform at the market throughout the evening is ukulele virtuoso Kris Fuchigami, who will perform at 8 p.m. and again at 11 p.m. Fuchigami is a world-renowned musical artist from Hawaii and was nominated for the prestigious Na Hoku Hano Hano Award for the Instrumental Composition of the Year category with his original composition of “Moemoea.”

The 2017 Year of Love Festival is also a great time to visit the “Legends of Guam” display at the Christmas Love From Guam light park, which is located across the street from the Tumon Night Market. At the holiday light park, visitors can learn how Two Lovers Point got its legendary name, how Guam and the universe were created, and how a local island girl transformed into a beautiful mermaid. The light park also features other holiday displays that are fun for picture taking.
