Holiday Inn prepares for the new year with a party

By  | 

If you are celebrating the start of 2018 here in Rapid City ... The Rushmore Plaza Holiday Inn is ending this year with a bang.

The hotel spent almost a whole year getting ready for their New Year's shindig.

To prepare for the event, they ordered more alcohol and hired more staff.

The party will have three different entertainment rooms simultaneously going on with music, dancing, and drinking.

One employee says they've been throwing a New Year's party for the last 13 years.

And she says they like to add to it every time to make it bigger and better.

Rushmore Plaza Holiday Inn, Accounts Receivable, Shelia Flesner says, "You know it's a safe place to be. You don't have to drive home. You can have fun. It's family friendly. You can sleep here. In the morning you can enjoy our breakfast. It's just a good safe place to be."

At midnight they'll drop the ball and release hundreds of balloons.

The Holiday Inn also offered guests special deals on rooms and dinner.
