Ring in the New Year with the whole family. This list of family-friendly activities will get the party started a little early, so the littles can enjoy the fun, too. And if you can’t get to one of the events, consider having your own countdown to noon party. (Netflix even offers countdowns you can do ANY time of day!) Bucks County Free Library system is now loaning out a host of party supplies, like jumbo checkers, bingo, fog machine, toys and a karaoke machine. You can see the full list at buckslib.org. Get dressed up, throw some confetti, and dance the early evening away. Or stay in your pajamas, build a fort, and have a low-key, relaxing game night. The choice is yours. Happy New Year!
