Where To Celebrate New Year's Eve in Westchester with Kids
If your kids are angling to stay up till midnight on New Year's Eve, remind them that even Cinderella couldn't do that. Instead, steer them toward one of the family festivities in Westchester and the Hudson Valley that ringsin the new year at the civilized hour of noon (or, even better, 11am...maybe even the day before...).
Below we've rounded up assorted ways for families to wrap up 2021 together. Whether you choose the Bubble Bus, a roller rink, or a Times Square-style ball drop with fireworks, you'll be glad to know that most of these events are FREE. Know what else they have in common? They'll probably sell out, so be sure to reserve your spots pronto. We've also listed New Year's Eve-themed programs that take place earlier in the week to get the party started sooner.
Additional options for December 31 include recurring holiday activities that continue into January, such as holiday light shows. Also refer to our guide to family activities over the holiday break, and keep close tabs on our Family Activities Calendar for yet more possibilities. Happy New Year!
