Families and children can start their New Year’s Eve activities early with a celebration from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Dec. 31 at the Vaughan Athletic Center.
The Family New Year’s Eve Party will ring in 2016 with a variety of festivities. 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 with a live DJ.
Popular features also include “Spin the Prize Wheel” and “Active Toddler Zone,” with the traditional New Year’s countdown featuring a colossal balloon drop at noon.
“This event gives kids their own celebration,” said guest relations supervisor Lisa Peterson. “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 strongly encouraged to pre-register by noon on Dec. 30 to guarantee admission, party favors, activities and snack. Advance tickets are $7 per person (ages 2 and up). Children under 2 are free. Day-of registration is $10 per person, but the event often sells out; party favors and snacks are not guaranteed for those who register on event day.
