Looking for a fun, family-friendly, local way to spend New Year’s? Head out to Old Sacramento for the free New Year’s Eve Sky Spectacular! Party (responsibly—remember the words “family friendly”) in the streets, enjoy street entertainment, food and drink vendors, and live music. Fireworks shows at 9 p.m. and midnight accommodate both the early birds and the night owls. Blankets and chairs are welcome (and maybe consider bringing an umbrella), but no alcoholic beverages are allowed in the streets. The event runs from 6 p.m. until 12:30 a.m. with special, kid-friendly entertainment provided from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. under the tent in Waterfront Park.
