Big Lick Downtown Countdown to be inside

Rain plan is in effect, meaning tickets are sold out


ROANOKE, Va.UPDATE (12:47 p.m. Monday)

With the rain plan in effect, tickets for this New Year's Eve event are sold out.


Pre-sale tickets are sold out. They were a limited number available because of the possibility of rain, which would mean that the event would have to be indoors. 

Organizers say they are watching the forecast and will make an announcement by 1 p.m. Monday about tickets. If they are able to host the event outside, they will be able to allow more ticket sales. 


With an iffy New Year's forecast, Big Lick Downtown Countdown organizers are preparing for rain. 

The New Year's Eve celebration was set to be indoors and outdoors around Market Square in downtown Roanoke, but with the possibility of rain, organizers are limiting the number of tickets available in case the whole event will need to be indoors. 

There are fewer than 25 general admission tickets left, and 40 VIP tickets. 

If the forecast looks better on Monday morning, Big Lick Entertainment will have more tickets available. 

General admission tickets are $10 and VIP tickets are $50. You can buy them online, or at the Center in the Square box office.
