New Year’s Eve Party
6 to 9 p.m., December 31
The city of Edina throws a New Year’s Eve bash for the whole family, and kids take center stage. Come casually dressed and prepared for an evening of lively activities. Games, contests, dancing and an 8:30 p.m. countdown ensure kids will have fun without staying out too late. Enjoy full access to Adventure Peak’s indoor playground and the Great Hall bouncy area. Throw in party hats, noisemakers and face painting for a real New Year’s Eve kid-style party. “It’s really a great festive place to spend New Year’s Eve as a family,” says Dawn Beitel, assistant manager of the aquatic center and Edinborough Park.
Concession goodies and beverages will be available for purchase.
Anyone is welcome to attend the event with a child 12 months to 12 years in tow. $9 per child, parents’ admission is free. Edinborough Park, 7700 York Ave. S.; 952.833.9540; edinamn.gov
