It seems like an adult holiday, but maybe it’s time to celebrate New Year’s Eve with the kids instead. Here are a few ideas for ringing in 2013, family-style.
• If you’re looking for something to do before the sun goes down, Port Discovery in Baltimore has a noontime New Year Superhero Spectacular, where you can count down to 2013 with an afternoon of live music, yoga and a dance party.
• First Night Alexandria includes a Fun Hunt and other activities at 2 p.m., followed by more than 100 performances at 18 venues in Old Town. Fireworks are at midnight at the end of King Street.
• The New Year’s Eve in Annapolis annual free event is centered around City Dock. The day starts with children’s events at 3 p.m., including music and crafts. There will be a round of fireworks at 7:30 p.m. so you can get the little ones to bed early. At 8 p.m., live music for adults begins, with more fireworks at midnight.
