Families will ring in the new year Saturday with the “Rock the Universe” party at the Mall of America’s Nickelodeon Universe. The event runs from 6 p.m. until midnight on New Year’s Eve.
The Mall of America deconstructed the ride formally known as the “Mighty Axe.”
Celebrating the New Year isn’t just for adults. There are a lot of family-friendly New Years Eve events getting underway. For families looking for something to do, here are some suggestions.
You’re a parent. The New Year’s Eve parties to the wee hours of the morning are but a distant (and perhaps foggy) memory. But who cares? Partying with the kids is far more fun. There are a lot of activities you and the little ones can participate in. And afterward, if you want to, there will still be time for you to drop the kids off with Grandma & Grandpa and stop by a grown-up party.
Target Field is truly a gem for downtown Minneapolis, especially for families looking for a great day of family fun. While the ballpark may be what lures families to the area, it also makes for a good excuse to check out other all-age activities while you’re in the area.
The Mall of America has called Minnesota home for nearly 20 years but there might be many things you don’t know about the second-largest mall in North America. With more than 500 stores and 2.5 million square feet of retail space, there is plenty to see. And there’s plenty you don’t want to miss! From dizzying heights to exploring the depths of the ocean, the Mall of America gives a unique experience to its visitors if you look beyond the massive amounts of shopping you could accomplish. So take a look at some of the unique things at the Mall and check them off your list on your next visit.
