New Year's Eve in Nearby Southern Utah

See also

The casinos are great, but not always the best place for family fun. Indeed some do have terrific programs for the kids, but just a two hour drive north of Las Vegas will let you have a fun-filled New Year's Eve for the entire family. So, do it together this year and head for the 2014 New Year's Eve FAMILY FEST in Washington.

That's Washington City in Washington County and it is in Southern Utah - right next door to St. George on the way to Zion National Park. You might want to add on a couple of days and squeeze in Zion but the event we're talking about here is the "Indoors & Warm" Family Fest.

This will be like a three ring circus with 3 fun filled arenas.

First, the Festival Arena with bounce houses & slides, minion & mermaid character visits, facepainting & balloon tying, tons of food, lots of games and vendor booths and, of course, music.

The Aqua Arena will offer a fireworks display with a massive balloon drop, a bubble party, a "dive in" movie (Despicable Me 2), walk on water balls, water slides and swimming.

The Hello 2014 Arena will provide a concert stage with live bands and vocalists, dancing, confetti blasts & balloon drop and even rock wall climbing.

The fun begins at 5 p.m and kids 3 and under are free. Find the discounts and complete information on the event website: And, check out the video.

Enjoy the New Year and . . . Keep on Traveling!
