New Year’s Eve Around Prince William County


Looking for ideas for New Year’s Eve you can enjoy with your kids?

Just south of PWC check out Cavalier Skate Center’s All Night Skate. For $20 plus a 2 dollar skate rental, enjoy games, prizes, and a balloon drop from 7pm-7am.

If you’re willing to drive a little, you can enjoy a “First Night” celebration in any of the following:

First Night Warrenton

First Night Vienna

First Night Alexandria

Watch Night Falls Church

First Night Winchester

New Years at Jammin Java (11am or 2pm)

Noon Years Eve at Monkey Joes Dulles

New Year Daytime Countdown at Kid Junction Chantilly

Ultrazone Laser Tag All Night Parties in Falls Church or Sterling

If you’re planning on enjoying an evening out alone sans kiddos, we have some options for that, too- although please make sure you have a designated driver or take advantage of a “Safe Ride Home” program.
