New Year’s Eve at Winterfest

Some kids want to stay up to ring in the new year, even if it kills them (or their parents). Save yourself the headache and take them to New Year's Eve at Winterfest. The ice rink in Kiener Plaza (500 Chestnut Street; hosts a family-friendly celebration that starts at 4 p.m. Tuesday, December 31. There will be costumed characters, the Sugarfire Winter Café will be open for business and ice skating, one of the more exhausting physical activities. Even better, New Year's Eve is ushered in at 8 p.m. only in Kiener Plaza, with a huge countdown and fireworks when the new year starts. Then you can ferry your little skaters home and either turn in yourself or wait 'til midnight. Admission is free, and skate rental is $7 to $12.
