New Year’s Eve 2015

Ahh…New Year’s Eve. A time where the best party food actually consists of snacks and finger-food, drinks are aplenty and it’s socially acceptable to allow children to stay up past their usual bed time (if they can make it that long). Midnight isn’t usually a big deal to us now, but New Year’s seems to be the only time where people make a point of counting down to a new day. Fort Wayne offers many venues to ring in 2015. Science Central’s Countdown to Noon (1950 Clinton St.): For those early birds or little ones who really just can’t stay up until midnight, this is for you. Party hats, noisemakers, face painting, science demonstrations and a giant balloon drop makes this the most kid-friendly New Year’s Eve celebration in town. At noon, there will be a soda toast and at the stroke of 12 p.m., 2,000 balloons will drop from the ceiling. 10a.m.-2 p.m. New Year’s Eve 2015 at Ceruti’s (6325 Illinois Road):  A $30 ticket includes entertainment by Good Night Gracie, hors d’oeuvres, midnight champagne toast, balloon drop, party favors and a cash bar.
