After the hustle and bustle of Christmas and all of the holiday festivities, you may be feeling a little burnt out about celebrating New Year's Eve. No matter how excited (or not) you may be about the upcoming new year, there are still plenty of ways to ring it in with your whole family. Around Indy, there are several events to help you celebrate...and maybe even get to bed at a decent hour!


Noon Year's Eve at Zion Nature Center

Register online for this family-friendly event! From 10am-12pm, enjoy an owl-themed celebration with a juice toast and 12pm balloon drop. Register online early as this event fills quickly!


Family Fun New Year's Eve featuring Cinderella at Books & Brews

For $30 per person, snag tickets to do some crafts, watch Cinderella on their projector, and then actually meet Cinderella! Perfect for the princess lovers in your family! At 8pm, the ball will drop and all ticketed guests receive a sparkling beverage.


Incrediplex Early New Year's Eve Balloon Drop

If you want the kids to sleep well on New Year's Eve, this is definitely an event to consider. Take the whole family to Incrediplex where they can play, bounce, climb, and enjoy laser tag. Burn off lots of holiday energy during this event. Also included is face painting, balloon activities, party favors, door prizes & giveaways. The event begins at 5pm and ends with a countdown and balloon drop at 8pm. Advanced tickets suggested.


NYE Family Fun Event at Dave & Buster's

Enjoy an appetizer buffet and supercharged play cards as part of this early evening event! Come out to eat, play games, and get an extra treat for the kiddos. The best part - you'll be home and in bed well before midnight. Advanced tickets suggested.


Countdown to Noon at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis

Included with the cost of admission, enjoy a much earlier countdown with the whole family! Offering a 12pm and 1pm countdown, you might even get to ring in the new year twice. Aside from the countdown, the family can enjoy a DJ, make a craft, and see a play in the Lilly Theater.


Celebrate at Home

There's no reason to go out if you'd rather stay home! Cook a favorite meal, enjoy some tasty treats, get out the noisemakers and ring in the new year wherever and whenever you want! Netflix has a countdown video that you can use at any time to ring in the new year - it's all up to you!


No matter what your style of party is, Indianapolis has you covered. Hopefully, it's full of friends, food, and celebrations. Have a happy, healthy, and safe new year!
