Kid Friendly New Years Eve Events - Denver Colorado

Funny how everything changes once those little ones enter your world.  Think back to those first New Years Eve events you attended BK (before kids).  Getting dressed up, drinking bubbly, actually staying up until midnight and ringing in the New Year!  What a fun experience....now, I am lucky if I make it to NYC's New Year and goodness knows those yoga pants are about as fancy as I am getting!  HA!!  Oh Parenthood.  Now, just because you can't attend the ball of the evening this year, doesn't mean you cannot have some fun with the family for this special event.  

Check out some of the best Kid Friendly New Years Eve events in Denver Colorado.  We are very lucky to have such a wide range of fun events to add to your calendar.

  1. These seem like fantastic things to do with the kiddos for New Year's Eve. In our city, most NYE parties are geared towards adults and the ticket prices are incredibly expensive. Love that you shared this kind of list for us families with youngings!

  2. That is wonderful that there are so many kid-friendly events on NYE in your area. We need to find some fun events for the kids on New Years Eve. My kids love the children's museum and zoo, so I will check those places to see if they are hosting anything fun!

  3. We have never done anything with the kids for New Years. We tried one year, but the kids got too tired and we came home and put them to bed. Maybe we will try again this year!

  4. Wow there is so much to do there! I keep saying that and telling my husband about it because I just loved it there so much when we went to visit. The best part in my opinion is no matter what you do, even driving in traffic, you get such a lovely view to look at.

  6. Excellent ideas - our family always loved museums and fireworks - I would especially love the YMCA of the Rockies Estes Park Colorado - New Years Eve Family Dance

  7. The more and more I see things posted about Denver, the more I want to go! My friend moved out there a few months ago and loves it! She doesn't have kids but I'm sure she would still enjoy this!

  8. So true about having little ones around change everything. :) Same as Melanie above, my youngest got afraid of the noise when he was one and they all get too tired...lol.

  9. We usually just stay at home on New Years Eve since we're a big family and our grandparents want us all in one place--at their house. We exchange gifts, watch the fireworks (yes, just watch), and eat delicious food.
