Wish in 2012 with a Great Night at the Great Park

In the spirit of the “First Night” celebrations around the country, you can wish in the New Year at Orange County’s Great Park Saturday night.  This free admission event ($10 for parking) is a family oriented New Year’s Eve with the countdown for 2012 on the East Coast to give the grown ups plenty of time to get back to their own party.

Read more about the event here.

Our very first Family New Year’s Eve party features live music, dancing, great food, carousel rides, games and activities for the kids – all in a safe, alcohol free environment.

The event will reflect music and images of each decade from the 1940s to the present. Local dance groups will perform dances from each era, and everyone can get down as a DJ plays tunes from the disco era in the Hangar 244 Lounge.

Southland Mega Groove, a popular 5-piece band with versatile vocalists, will rock the night away with songs from across the decades, starting at 7:00 p.m. and again at 8:30 p.m. when the Park transforms into a party atmosphere in time to ring in the New Year with a pop of streamers, party hats and noise makers.

Visitors will be able to see military vehicles and vintage cars and kids can create artistic crafts, enjoy carousel rides and everyone can dine on delicious food available from a variety of gourmet food vendors. Visitors can also send New Years Eve photos to friends and family and post them on Facebook from one of four special high-tech photo booths on site.

    Ten dollar parking, thousands of acres of barren wasteland, and a cockamamey balloon ride, all for only $150,000,000 of taxpayer dollars. What’s not to like. Liberal spending run amok. These are a few of Beth’s, and Larry’s and Sukhee’s, and Dan’s favorite things.

    Is it up to or gone past 150 million yet Allan? How much is spent every month on the park? And what is being created with the money being spent?
