Big Kids Sleepover
While adults enjoy dancing and libations, youngsters at the Big Kid Sleepover at Jumpoline Park can bring in the New Year with a massive mylar-balloon drop and a Times Square-themed piñata full of treats. Before and after midnight, they can play video games, boogie during a silent disco, compete in rounds of trampoline dodge ball and basketball, or marvel as a magician turns 2012 into 2013. Papa John's Pizza, bottled Eldorado water, and Pop Chips will help reenergize pajama-clad youngsters, who can also catch some shuteye in sleeping bags they bring. Licensed specialists from Tots on the Spot will provide overnight childcare until 7 a.m. Security will also be on hand, and a live webcam will be set up so parents can check in on their kids.
NYE Block Party
Up to 6,000 guests will pack the Crowne Plaza Denver International Airport's multiroom event space, which stands at the center of a block party encompassing multiple hotels with discounts on rooms and free shuttle service to and from the event. Running from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., the 21 and older event requires photo identification to enter. Dress to impress.
Though balloons drop to the floor and confetti blasts from cannons at the stroke of midnight, traditional New Year's Eve sights will otherwise be few and far between during the NYE Block Party. Dance teams will dramatically strut their stuff, stilt walkers will loom above partygoers, and '80s-themed go-go dancers will groove on towering platforms. Local bands will cover popular tunes in the live-music ballroom, DJs such as DJ Bedz and DJ Digi will be spinning Top 40 and electro in the convention center, and Bollywood hits will be blaring from the international-music ballroom.
