15 Family Friendly New Year’s Eve Celebrations

Do you have New Year’s Eve family traditions? Do you stay in for celebrations? Or are you looking to get out of the house, party down and ring in 2018?  Since we have had our children, we have spent every New Year’s Eve with them. (Finding a babysitter on New Year’s Eve can be a tad difficult.) Luckily, there are plenty of options in the greater Waukesha County area to have a great time with the whole family!  Check out our 2018 Family Friendly New Year’s Eve Celebrations Guide to plan your end of the year fun!

Plus, we have some fun for your New Year’s Day as well!

PS> There are actually 16 events listed, but one is on December 28 for those that want to celebrate early. 

Please thank our New Year’s Eve Guide sponsor:
