The Denver Post - - NEWS - By Danika Wor­thing­ton

Den­ver will ring in the New Year on Satur­day night with two fire­work shows sched­uled on 16th Street Mall for the 15th year in a row.

The iden­ti­cal shows, each last­ing roughly eight min­utes, are syn­chro­nized with music played by eight DJs along the mall, said Down­town Den­ver Part­ner­ship spokes­woman Sharon Al­ton. The shows, which start at 9 p.m. and mid­night, can be viewed from any­where on the mall.

The fire­works will be launched from two rooftops — the Sher­a­ton Den­ver Down­town Ho­tel and an undis­closed lo­ca­tion, ac­cord­ing to DDP. Each show has 15,000 im­pres­sions in the sky and ends with a 40sec­ond fi­nale.

The DJs will play music from 8 p.m. to mid­night along the 16th Street Mall from Court Place to Larimer Street, Al­ton said.

There will be lim­ited Free Mal­lRide ser­vice from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. Sun­day be­cause of the shows, ac­cord­ing to the Re­gional Trans­porta­tion District. There will be no ser­vice on the D, F and H lines be­tween the the­ater district/con­ven­tion cen­ter and 18th & Cal­i­for­nia/Stout sta­tions.

RTD bus, rail, Ac­cess-a-Ride and SkyRide ser­vices will be free from 7 p.m. Satur­day to 7 a.m. Sun­day. RTD will op­er­ate on a week­day sched­ule Satur­day but a Sun­day/hol­i­day sched­ule on New Year’s Day.
