Welcome to The Mint Chip Mama blog! A fun, lighthearted parenting, lifestyle and travel blog for families on Long Island & the Tri-State area. Fun things we do at home, local hikes, new products, art projects, & giveaways.
Looking for something fun and kid friendly to do New Years Eve? How about “ringing” in the New Year under the heated big top of the Big Apple Circus?
As you know over here at The Mint Chip Mama we LOVE the Big Apple Circus. So much so that you can check out my full review here. So when they asked me to help spread the word about this special performance I was happy to help!
The Big Top at Lincoln Center will be filled with music, magic and memories to last a lifetime. The fun begins at 9:30pm on Wednesday, December 31st and will end just in time for a count down to 2015 led by the Ringmaster, John Kennedy Kane.
At midnight, welcome in the New Year with a champagne or non-alcoholic sparkling cider toast, and join the cast of circus performers in the ring for dancing with live music provided by Rob Slowik and the Big Apple Circus Band. Special New Year’s Eve party hats, noise-makers and goody bags will also be provided.
If your children are old enough to stay up until midnight, but not ready to be out on their own, this is the perfect way to ring in the New Year!
Busy New Years Eve but looking for something to do next week over the school break? You have two shows to choose from each day til January 4th (one at 12:30pm and another at 4:30pm)!
In addition to the Big Apple Circus’ Ticket Specials I’m pleased to offer my readers the promo code BIGAPPLE which will give you up to $25 off each ticket! (Limited availability. Offer good on select seats and shows. Other conditions apply).
