City of Columbia’s New Year’s Eve Party for Kids

City of Columbia is hosting a NYE party for kids!

Spend the afternoon strolling, shopping and enjoying downtown Columbia, and take the little ones to the City of Columbia Parks and Recreation Dept.’s New Year’s Eve Party for Kids, a family friendly event with games, face painting and more, as well as the Main Street Ice skating rink at Boyd Plaza. (Both events are independent of Famously Hot New Year.) 

The carnival takes place on Main Street in between Washington and Taylor Streets and adjacent to Main Street Ice in Boyd Plaza, which is located at the corner of Main and Hampton Streets. Bring your whole family down for games, jumps, face-painting and a Ferris wheel. When they’ve had their fill of fun, bring them home to the sitter and hurry back for more adult entertainment when the concert begins.
