Where to be on New Year’s Eve in Northeast Wisconsin:
College Ave., Appleton
Help the kiddos start the new year well-rested.

“New Year`s at the Building for Kids is a great way to welcome 2022 with the whole family,” said Oliver Zornow, Executive Director of the BFK. “If you have kids (or even adults) that won`t quite make it until midnight, we`ve got you covered with all of the fun and excitement of midnight at various times throughout the day.”
