Things To Do on New Year's Eve with Connecticut Kids

Once you're a parent, New Year's Eve takes on a whole new meaning. It's a time for festivities, yes, but also remembering bedtimes, managing crowds, and keeping kids busy for the another day out of school. Organized by region and spanning morning to night, here are some ideas for kid-centric New Year's Eve celebrations, including several countdowns to 12 (noon!), a family skating party, a slopeside torchlight parade, and a spectacular fireworks show. Here's to ringing in 2020—family style!
