It’s almost New Year’s Eve—and Los Angeles has loads of New Year celebrations and things to do on New Year’s Eve with kids. Ring in 2023 by taking part in a balloon drop (at noon or midnight, depending on your household bedtime!), seeing the Story Pirates, catching some fireworks, or even roller skating your way into the new year. There are also plenty of innovative ways to party at home as a family or learn some cool New Year's Eve celebrations from around the world.

More events and activities can always be found on our Los Angeles event calendar and our guide to the best activities of the weekend.

And that’s a wrap for 2022! Happy New Year from all of us at Mommy Poppins.
