First Night Alexandria is one of the best New Year's Eve Party in the Washington, DC region for families with kid under 12! Tickets are only $20 per person (13 years and older), and kids under 12 get in FREE! First Night is a celebration of the New Year through the performing arts. Coffee shops, retail stores, office lobbies, museums and public buildings are turned into performance venues to showcase incredible local and regional talent. Plus don’t miss the big finale just before midnight when the mayor and friends count down to a fabulous fireworks display on the Potomac River!
Here is the line up of great family friendly events on December 31, 2014:
2 p.m. – Start the day at the Torpedo Factory Art Center and pick up a First Night Alexandria Fun Hunt clue sheet before setting off on a scavenger hunt adventure around Old Town. Not into scavenger hunts? Partake in interactive art activities in the Torpedo Factory’s great hall and The Art League Gallery or explore Alexandria’s past in the Alexandria Archeology Museum. If your pet has a talent you'll want to check out the main hall's north end where the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria will be conducting a pet competition!
6 p.m. – Beside the Durant Arts Center is the Jefferson Houston School, where families are invited to delight in festivities like model sailboat making, carnival games, ThinkFun games, a moon bounce and other kiddie carnival games from 2-10 p.m.
7 p.m. – Return to the Durant Arts Center for a free shuttle to the George Washington Masonic Memorial, where you’ll find activities like face painting, nail art, balloon sculptures by friendly clowns, music and dancing
Midnight – Head outside along the memorial steps and view the fireworks bursting over the Potomac River!
Take photos along the way and enter to win cash prizes in the Extraordinary Exposures new competition!
