Emerald Event Center Caps off the Holiday Season with Flair

The Emerald Event Center capped off its first holiday season with a spectacular New Year’s event – “A Roaring Good Time,” that had guests ringing in the New Year with style, mouthwatering cuisine, dancing and drinks. After dining on a feast fit for a holiday celebration — Petite Angus Beef Filet,  Split Cold Water Lobster Tail and Beef Wellington —many opted to purchase an overnight package and “ride the elevator home” following the dazzling evening.

Before turning our focus to the many fresh events of the spring season , enjoy a behind-the-scenes look into what went into planning this gala event.
