Brace yourself!   Jamaica is turning 50 and Jewel Dunn’s River will the scene of a rockin’ New Years Eve party. 

Party planners are set to ring out the old and ring in the new at the annual New Year’s Eve bash.

Jewel Dunn’s River opens their celebration to the public and Jamaicans will be raising the roof a little higher this year.

2012 is a very special New Years Eve for Jamaica as the island is celebrating 50 years as an independent nation.

The resort is set to celebrate big time!   This year will feature some of the best live bands possible.

An awesome smorgasbord, wild Jamaican cocktails, dancing and more take the party to the countdown to 2013.  The celebration moves indoors to the Bling! nightclub at 1:30 a.m. for some cutting edge deejays keeping the dance party going and the resort pulls out all the stops with a tempting 2:00 a.m. breakfast buffet.

So far, the resort is keeping a lid on the headliners for this years party and that is leading to all kinds of speculation.

One of the managers told me that the resort always goes big but this year expect to be the biggest in resort history.

There is another reason to celebrate 2013.

The resort will be cutting the ribbon on an amazing water park.  This is going to be one of the best designs and will offer fun for just about any adventurer.

Everyone here has the same New Years resolution.  They want you to come back again and again to visit.
