LUDLOW, Vt. – Okemo Mountain Resort turns New Year’s Eve into a family celebration by moving midnight forward – allowing families with young children to ring in the New Year with events, activities and fireworks … and still get a full night’s sleep. Okemo’s Family New Year’s Eve party is scheduled from 5 to 9 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 31.
Following early evening mountain coaster rides, horse-drawn wagon rides, magic shows, ski movies, arts and crafts, marshmallow roasting, party-hat decorating, bingo, trivia, and even fire dancers, families can ring in the New Year early with a DJ Dance Party and pizza buffet – and still get the kids to bed in time for a full day on the slopes the next day. Okemo’s mascot, Calvin the Catamount, will lead the kids in some fun party games. Dux the Balloon Man will entertain partygoers. There will also be a family photo booth, noisemakers, and a fireworks display at 9 p.m. at Okemo’s Jackson Gore. Children attending the Pizza and DJ Dance Party must be accompanied by a parent.
