New Year’s Eve in San Diego for the Whole Family

The combination of dazzling fireworks, bubbly drinks, noise-makers, poppers and staying up late makes New Year’s Eve a holiday everyone loves. While many NYE events are adults only (here are a few highlights for the over 21 crowd), there are plenty of great events that kids of all ages can enjoy.

Kids’ New Year’s Eve at LEGOLAND

Start off the day with some roller coasters and Lego creations, then end the day early with family friendly concerts starting at 2:30. Watch out for the LEGO brick drop 22 feet as the clock counts down, followed by fireworks display at 6:00 pm. This is a great way to enjoy the New Year and still be in bed at a reasonable time.

Ring In The New Year at John’s Incredible Pizza Co.

Want everything for the kids taken care of this New Year’s? Then book your spot at John’s Incredible Pizza Co. in San Diego’s South Bay. The family can enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet all night long, along with drinks, rides and prizes. At midnight, the excitement continues with the IncrediBear Horn Parade and the ball drop on the big screen.

New Year’s Bash at the New Children’s Museum

On Friday, December 30th, the New Children’s Museum will party all-day with a music and dance festival featuring performances by Pink Army, Rhythm Child, Clint Perry & the Boo Hoo Crew, Studio FX, San Diego Guild of Puppetry, and much more. This way you can celebrate the New Year with the kids on Friday and reserve Saturday for the adults!

What will you and your family be doing this New Year’s Eve?

About Brent Bernasconi

I am a local San Diegan (though surprisingly, I do not know how to surf). While not at work, I enjoy biking, running, soccer, bocce ball, craft brew (I hope to make a batch of home brew one day), reading, movies, and a video game here and there. My goal is to set foot in as many states, countries and continents as I possibly can (I have hit 14 states, 9 countries, and 3 continents), though I will always call San Diego home. How would you describe your ideal San Diego day?So after a good night's sleep, first I would take the puppy for a nice long walk. Then I would pack the bicycle panniers with a picnic lunch for the wife and I and we would ride over to Mission Trails for some trail riding and then a lovely lunch under the shade by the river. After the ride home, a shower and a nap would follow. Once rested, we would head out to the Blind Lady and enjoy a local brew and some organic pizza.If you were invisible, where would you go?Area 51! I would love to know what they are doing that is so top secret.What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?So many choices, but if I have to pick one I would choose bikingrunningsoccerbocceball. Though sitting outside with a good book on a sunny day would come in close second.Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?Nothing could be better than a San Diego Craft Beer (Hess, Stone, Ballast Point, Automatic, and many many more) and a burger with onion rings and BBQ-sauce. Though you will often find me boiling some pasta with a glass of wine in my hand and Ratatouille on in the background.Latest music purchases for my iPod/MP3 player are…A few albums by Jonathan Coulton, the ultimate geek musician. If you get a chance, listen to Code Monkey.If you like, you can follow me on Twitter @bernasconi.
