It was a sign of what was to come of 2020 when the fireworks were canceled last year at the Space Needle to ring in the new year.

The annual New Year's Eve fireworks show will not be happening again this year due to the pandemic, but will be putting on a very elaborate light show that can only be seen on TV.

This year you can celebrate the arrival of 2021 virtually at the Space Needle with the T-Mobile New Year's at the Needle.

In person the needle will be lit in the T-Mobile magenta color but on your TV screen you'll be able to see the virtual spectacular.

You can watch the first ever virtual display on the Space Needle New Year's Eve starting at 11:35pm on KING 5 and KONG-TV. Also use the hashtag #NYESeattle to share how you're celebrating from home.
