Posted by Kris Lindahl on Friday, December 26th, 2014 at 8:28am.

Christmas is now officially behind us so we can look forward to the biggest celebration of the year, New Year’s Eve. If you’re itching for something different this year, check out the following list. We’ve rounded up some winners.

Afton Alps

New Year’s Eve isn’t typically considered a “family” celebration – it’s for grownups. That doesn’t mean there aren’t family-friendly events here in Minnesota, because Afton Alps has put together what should be fun for all.

Afton Alps comprises 250 acres on which to ski, 37 runs and a vertical drop of 350 feet. They also offer snowboarding and lessons for beginners are free. In fact, the entire New Year’s Eve celebration is free. There will be music, torchlight skiing, contests and, of course, fireworks at midnight.

Afton Alps is in Hastings at 6600 Peller Ave. S. Reach them by phone at 651-436-5245.

Chanhassen Dinner Theatres

Chanhassen Dinner Theatres is offering you three options to ring in the new year:

  •         Hello Dolly!
  •         Martini & Olive
  •         Stevie Ray’s Comedy Cabaret

After the show you can kick up your heels on the Main Stage, or the Club Theatre where there will be DJ.

Chanhassen Dinner Theatres is offering a special menu on New Year’s Eve as well, with a choice of entrees. These include Baked Atlantic Salmon, 10 oz. Certified Angus Beef Top Sirloin, Chicken Saltimbocca or Lobster Tail.

After midnight you’re invited to enjoy the coffee and sweets bar by the fireplace.

Tickets for the New Year’s Eve extravaganza are $99.
