When: Sat., Dec. 31, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. 2016
We haven't had a nighttime New Year's party you could bring your kids to since First Night stopped happening. But this year, the St. Louis Blues and the CityArchRiver Foundation have planned a little something for everybody. The Family Friendly New Year's Eve at the Winterfest at the Arch skating rink in Luther Ely Smith Square (North Fourth and Market streets; www.archwinterfest.com) features a day of skating ($7 to $12) from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. with food trucks, music and performances by Circus Kaput, the local practitioners of everything from comedy stunts to aerial artistry. And then at 8 p.m., you get fireworks over the Mississippi.
