Glitz and glam isn’t everyone’s jam for New Years Eve San Diego. Sometimes—especially if you have kids in your party of revelers—the most fun is when midnight comes early. At Legoland California you can celebrate together without missing their bedtimes.


Legoland California re-creates the Times Square ball drop with a giant Lego brick falling 22 feet in the air, and Grammy-nominated artists will lead the countdown for San Diego’s largest Kids’ New Year’s Eve Party!

Join in the festivities with party hats and special glasses for viewing fireworks. The party concludes just in time for our countdown at 6pm with a fireworks display illuminating the sky and providing a great ending to an amazing year.
