If there is anything more out of control than a group of twenty-somethings on New Year’s Eve, it’s a group of children—well… anytime there’s sugar involved. The point is, kids like to party, too. As such, we’ve compiled a list of fun, family friendly and even educational local NYE 2015 events for the little ones in your life.

The best part? All of these kiddie festivities take place well before the sun goes down—leaving parents plenty of time to have grown-up fun in the evening.

Visit the SanJose.com Calendar for more events.
