Whether you are into a crazy night out, concerts, theatres, or a quieter New Year's Eve across museums and arcades, Minneapolis can offer something for everyone. The city's upscale NYE parties are still the top pick. Lumber Exchange, Minneapolis Club, Convention Center, The Armory, Calhoun Beach Club, Metropolitan Ballroom, and dozens of other elite venues host glitzy themed bashes, able to impress even the most sophisticated tastes.
Crystal Ball NYE at Lumber Exchange, downtown Minneapolis, is among the favorite places to dance your way into the New Year. The premier annual event offers much more dazzling entertainment than just a disco spanning across multiple rooms. Check out live karaoke, dueling pianos, games, and photo opportunities.
Family celebrations are present in Twin Cities too. Your kids will enjoy Noon Year's Party at Como Park Zoo, St Paul. In addition to music, contests, and crafts, the favorite activity must be visiting local animals. The festivities run from 10 am through 1 pm on both December 31 and January 1.
The program differs from year to year, yet you might get perplexed with the number of options when exposed to the entire list of events. Anyways, be sure Mini Apple is extremely vibrant on this night.
