Here are the top New Year activities in Kansas City
1. FAMILY-FRIENDLY FESTIVITIES
Got some energetic kids? No worries. You can drop off your kids to have an early New Year celebration with Wonder Eve in Wonderscope. Full O’Ballooney will provide balloon entertainment; Mr. Stinky Feet, Jim Cosgrove, will perform; and everyone will be able to ring in the “Noon Year” with noisemakers and a confetti blast at noon. For you and your partner, the Coffee Cake KC truck will be on site.
2. ZOO YEAR’S EVE
A little stroll at the Kansas City Zoo will be nice for your family bonding time before 2019. This will bring your family a wild touch to your New Year's Celebration considering the event includes penguins, polar bears, lemurs and other zoo wild animals. A fun event in the Kansas City Zoo where penguin march will begin at 11 a.m., with the sea lion splash at 1:30 p.m. and a penguin feeding at 2 p.m. Visitors also will make party hats, dance to the beats of a DJ counting down to noon and visit a photo booth, proving you don’t have to be of age to get wild for the New Year.
3. THEATRE RESTAURANT
There is nothing more exciting than to watch actors and actresses perform during NYE, all while your friends and family have a chance to enjoy an exquisite dinner. New Theatre & Restaurant (Overland Park) offers funny stories played by actors to boost your New Year's appetite. Jim O’Heir, a Chicago native who played lovable loser Jerry Gergich on the NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation,” won a Daytime Emmy Award in April for outstanding guest performer in a drama series. The night is not complete without O’Heir’s Funny money. Now he stars in this farce about a man who mistakenly picks up a briefcase containing $1.5 million and decides to keep the money.
4. BAR CRAWLS
For some, celebrating NYE will not be complete if there isn’t a hint of champagne flowing in their veins. Active socialites have different options to go into this New Year’ Eve. The Well (7421 Broadway St.) will be the check in location for our Celebration at the corner. While, Lew's (539 Wornall Rd) & Charlie Hoopers (12 W 63rd St) will be other participating venues which will have DJs and champagne toasts at midnight.
