Everyone Can Enjoy New Year’s Eve

Whether it’s New Year’s Eve or Noon Year’s Eve, there will be plenty of things to do on Monday. I found a couple of events that are wildly different, but that should cover the bases whether you want to bring the whole family out or not. If you have some kiddos and want them to enjoy some of your typical NYE events at a more appropriate time and location, check out Noon Year’s Eve. This event is brought you by the fine folks at the Kidspace Children’s Museum in Pasadena.

The event aficionados at TimeOut Los Angeles describe it as thus, “This cute kid celebration mimics a grown-up New Year’s Eve fete but counts down to a balloon drop at noon rather than midnight. Little ones can make party hats and noise makers together beforehand, dance to live music and sip on sparkling cider to welcome in the “noon” year.” Now doesn’t that sound equal portions adorable and fun. And let me just say that regardless of age, sparkling cider is a treat for everyone. The event runs from 9:30am to 3pm and you’ll want to get there by 11am if you want to participate in all the countdown festivities.

A Traditional New Year’s Eve Affair

Now if you were lucky enough to find a sitter, you’ll be able to put the kiddos to bed and participate in a more traditional New Year’s Eve. The Queen Mary is holding one of the Southland’s biggest NYE parties. It can get a little pricey at $115 for GA tickets and $215 for VIP tickets; however, it’s well worth it.

You’re going to have the perfect excuse to dress up and channel your inner Hollywood Star or Starlet of yesteryear. Not to mention, you can treat yourself to a fantastic fireworks display, live music, and drunken revelry. You might not be able to buy love or buy friends, but you can buy some New Year’s Eve fun.

Happy New Year’s!
