Fishes and Wishes at the Long Island Aquarium

This family-friendly celebration takes place from 6:30 P.M. to 11:00 P.M. on New Year’s Eve. It’s meant for people of all ages, and there’s plenty to keep both kids and adults entertained, including a dance with a live DJ, arts and crafts stations, and an impressive buffet dinner (complete with sparkling cider). Spirits will be flowing for the older crowd and there will be a midnight toast that’s not quite at midnight (10:30 P.M.). Prices range from $55 to $99 and for more information, take a look at the official website.

Billy Joel at NYCB Live

Long Island native Billy Joel will be taking the stage at NYCB Live on December 31st to put on what’s sure to be an unforgettable show. It will also be the 25th anniversary of the last time he played on New Year’s Eve at the very same venue. Grab your closest friends and make sure to book some tickets so that you can all bring in 2019 by listening to one of the world’s most talented performers as he sings his classics. There might also be some surprise celebrity appearances, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled!

Patchogue’s Midnight on Main Street

Turns out there’s a ball ceremony taking place right here in Long Island! There’s going to be plenty going on in Patchogue on New Year’s Eve, including:

  • A street dance party
  • Lots of music
  • Free noisemakers for everyone
  • Fireworks by Grucci Grand Illuminations

In order to make sure the kids can bring in 2019, they’ll be celebrating the new year a little ahead of time (9:00 P.M.), but the party doesn’t have to end there. People are encouraged to continue with the festivities by moving the celebration indoors to any of the many nearby restaurants.

VICE at the Cinema Arts Center in Huntington
