With only 3 days left in 2014, our thoughts are turning to the new year!

If you’re looking to let someone else plan the celebration, there are several family-friendly options available in the area.

First Night Monterey: First Night in Monterey is the definitive New Year’s Eve event. Even before we moved down here, we would come down and ring in the new year by wandering the streets with a coffee and listening ear. The music is wonderful (we’ve purchased cds of performers we ‘discovered’), the community atmosphere is contagious and it’s a perfect way to celebrate with the kids. We always left with just enough time to get home and watch the ball drop.

 

Noon Year’s Eve: My Museum knows how to throw a great party. And if you have a 2-6 year old, this is THE party to be seen at this holiday. 😉 Bring your kiddo and enjoy noisemakers, face painting and a ball drop just for them. Bonus: it’s held from 10-12pm, so there is plenty of time to celebrate in other ways as well!

New Year’s Eve Seashore Sleepover: If you are looking to expand your New Year’s Eve guest list, consider inviting the fishes as you sleep over at the Monterey Bay Aquarium! This special event will feature a sparkling cider toast at 9 p.m. to celebrate the countdown to the New Year on East Coast time. There will be fun family activities and programs for a night of celebration, including a sundae bar! Wake up with the fishes on New Year’s Day, enjoy a continental breakfast, and then join our naturalists in watching wildlife from the Great Tide Pool deck.
