Party Like Its Almost 2018
Whether you like to party with the crowd and prefer a quieter celebration and whether you’ll be hanging out with the kids this year or not, we’ve got the scoop on some of the best events happening in the greater Bothell and Kirkland area.
Perfect for the whole family, you can celebrate the New Year all week long as Celebration Lane is performed at 7:00 p.m. each night from December 26-31, 2017. There will be dancing in the streets – literally – as costumed characters, live drummers, dazzling lights and a storm of bubbles floating down from high above. This year’s presentation features Americana-inspired dance music appropriate for all ages. Don’t come late though as the show is performed for only about 30 minutes. Free parking at Bellevue Square, Bellevue Place and Lincoln Square.
Celebrate from 9:00 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. with Fastlane at Hayne’s Hall ($20-$25) or The Lowest Pair (free!) in Patty’s Room. Fastlane features dancing with all music genres and The Lowest Pair features “old-time roots influenced duet, featuring the high lonesome harmonies of banjo pickin' songsters Kendl Winter and Palmer T. Lee.” A sparkling wine midnight toast is included. Overnight packages available.

Willows Lodge promises a great night of fun, food, live entertainment and more to close out 2017 in style.

Party favors and a champagne toast will be held at the stroke of midnight. $100 per person. Cash bar available. For a quieter, but no less special evening, enjoy a six-course meal (paired with a selection of wines) at the Barking Frog including Mero Sea Bass, 72 hour Sous Vide Wagu Short Ribs and more. Seatings are available at 5:30 and 9:00 p.m. $150 per person.
