Things To Do with Kids in New Jersey this Weekend, December 29, 2018 - January 1, 2019

It's the final countdown to 2019! Make the last weekend of 2018 a memorable one, with holiday lights, amusements, and family-friendly New Year's eve celebrations. If you haven't experienced New Jersey's most dazzling light displays, catch the grand finales at Turtle Back Zoo, Smithville, and Skylands Stadium. Plus, bundle up for last-chance holiday festivities at Six Flags and Storybook Land.

Party like it's 2019 at New Year's Eve events the whole family will enjoy. Celebrate with aquatic friends at Adventure Aquarium's New Year's Eve Splash, count down with farm friends at PAWS Discovery Farm's "Ewe" Years Celebration, and ring in the new year a few hours early at Kids Daytime NYE Party, New Year's at Noon, and Kidville New Year's Eve Ball Drop
