Puerto Rico to be featured on New Year's Eve telecast

Puerto Rico will welcome the New Year with the first-ever Spanish-language countdown celebrations at the convention center and adjacent Distrito T-Mobile entertainment complex in San Juan. "Dick Clark’s New Year's rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2022” airs on ABC from Times Square on December 31.
This event is a collaboration with Gov. Brad Dean, CEO, Discover Puerto Rico, said that Pedro Pierluisi will be joined by MRC Live & Entertainment, ABC and ABC for a global broadcast that will showcase "the vibrancy, culture, and history of the island" and commemorate San Juan’s 500th anniversary.

The broadcast will be live on ABC from 8 p.m. ET on December 31 to 2 a.m. ET on January 1. The countdown for Puerto Rico will take place at 11 p.m. Eastern Time.

The governor stated that they are ready to celebrate the New Year like never before and to show the world that Puerto Rico remains open for business. "This event will be enjoyed both by our local community as well as millions of people around the globe."

Dean said that Puerto Rico would be prominently featured for a large global audience as we enter peak tourist season. We invite all travelers to begin their 2022 journey with us.

Distrito T-Mobile was established two months ago in the vicinity of the Puerto Rico Convention Center. It features live entertainment, shops, and restaurants.
