Ring in the New Year in style on the Detroit Princess’ 12th Annual “Rock The Boat” New Years Eve party. Your ticket includes a fabulous dinner buffet, champagne toast at midnight, party favors, Motown music, dancing and a cash bar.

On the riverfront at the Roostertail, attend the Motown Countdown Classic Decades New Years Eve Party.
