Rosemont Businesses To Hold Family-Friendly NYE Events
Miriam - Journal & Topics
While New Year’s Eve is expected to bring crowds to Rosemont for parties at local hotels and bars, there are also some events appropriate for the entire family.
For those looking for family-friendly New Year’s Eve fun, events are early enough in the day to make sure little ones are home in time for bed.
Kings Dining & Entertainment is more than just a restaurant and bar; it’s also a bowling alley that families can visit until 10 p.m. Dec. 31. After 10 p.m. the venue will turn into a 21-and-older-only space for the remainder of the night.
Hofbrauhaus, in MB Financial Park, celebrates New Year’s beginning at 2 p.m. Dec. 31 and will cater directly to families and children. Face painting will take place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and the event will also include a magic show and parade. The event will culminate with toasting to the New Year when it strikes midnight in Munich, Germany, or 5 p.m. Rosemont time. Once the kids have their fun, an adults-only celebration will continue later in the evening.
The ice rink at MB Financial Park will also remain open from 11 a.m. Dec. 31 through 1 a.m. Jan. 1. Skaters and MB Financial Park guests will be treated to a fireworks display at midnight. It’s worth noting that once the clock strikes midnight, MB Financial Park will become Parkway Bank Park, as the naming rights officially shift over to Parkway Bank in 2018.
