New Year’s Eve is almost here, and we’ve put together the only resource you need when you’re planning those festivities with the kids. Most of the celebrations in Edmonton are family-friendly, and therefore have earlier Fireworks launches for parents that plan on celebrating themselves, later in the evening, or families that don’t want to stay up too late and make that transition back to school harder than it has to be.
Where to watch New Year’s Eve Fireworks with Kids
Baturyn’s 3rd Annual family friendly New Year’s Eve is a go! Pasta dinner, licensed bar and FIREWORKS at 8pm! There are no longer tickets available for the party or event, but you can catch the Fireworks from near the community league!
