We took the kiddos out to Austin's Auditorium Shores for New Year's Eve. We've been to this place several times for concerts and whatnot. Typically there's a family-friendly event going on and bonus, they're usually, if not always free.
This was no different. Live music, a rave inspired neon light circus show, food vendors, and capped off with a fireworks show. We had no intentions of sticking around for the fireworks since they happen at 10pm and my kids are still too young to know that Mom and Dad gypped them in any way.
