Family New Year’s Eve Bash starts celebration early for kids

Families and children can start their New Year’s Eve activities early with a celebration from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 31, at the Vaughan Athletic Center.

The Family New Year’s Eve Bash will ring in 2018 with twice the excitement, as the massive balloon drop at noon – the traditional highlight – will feature 2,000 balloons, double the amount in previous years.

A variety of activities keeps things hopping. Kids and adults can get energetic while climbing and bouncing on giant inflatables, playing interactive games, competing in hula hoop contests and dancing to the latest tunes from an inflatable DJ booth that doubles as a light show.

Popular features also include the “Active Toddler Zone,” a “Meet-and-Greet” with favorite characters including Spider-Man, Tinkerbell, Storm Trooper, Elsa, Cinderella and others. New highlights include a cotton candy machine, Tarot card readers and a waxed hand vendor for 2017 keepsakes.

“This event gives kids their own celebration,” said program supervisor Stevie Ferrari. “It’s a great way for families and friends to enjoy a New Year’s party that’s convenient and fun for everybody.”

Guests are encouraged to pre-register by noon on Dec. 30 to guarantee admission and a party bag with favors and snacks. Advance tickets are $10 per person (ages 2 and up). Children under 2 are free. Day-of registration is $13 per person, but the event often sells out; party favors and snacks are not guaranteed for those who register on event day.
