The inaugural Crystal Ball occurred December 31, 2003 and in 10 amazing years has grown to become the largest and longest running New Year’s event in the Midwest. In honor of 10 great years, we’re pulling out all of the stops… Featuring all five levels of IMS, over 25 bars and the best entertainment and lighting we’ve ever had!
