Columbus New Year's Eve Events for Families

2013/2014 Family friendly options for every budget

You can't take the kiddies to the bar for New Year's Eve. It's really frowned upon in polite society. Instead, take the family to one of the several Central Ohio events geared toward the under 21 crowd.
