MILWAUKEE - With everything from sports to pajama's parties, there's no shortage of family fun for New Years. Many will be ringing in 2013 with those they love most.
Susan Galewski is looking forward to a nice New Year’s Eve with her family after a busy Christmas.
"We just like finding a family movie we can watch together and just hanging out together,” Galewski says.

Their family fun started early at The Mitchell park Domes.

That's where preparations are underway for Monday's family fun New Year's Eve celebration.
"They can see a magician here performing and you're also going to see a juggler performing which does wonderful acts and a live band," Domes Marketing Director, Peter Lepkowski says.
Even though the event goes from six to nine New Year’s Eve, there is a balloon drop to help ring in the New Year.

It's also very affordable; tickets are $10 for adult and $5 dollars for children over the age of four.
"Since we're one of the few indoor places that someone can go to, to be affordable for them, we usually attract quite a crowd in that evening," Lepkowski says.
The Harlem Globbtrotters are also expected to draw a family crowd at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. They'll let fans make up the rules as they play.
The New Year's Eve fun continues at the Betty Brinn Children's Museum with a pajama party from 5:30 to 8:30 tonight.

They too will have a ball drop to welcome the New Year.

Tickets are $14 per person, museum members are $10 per person and tickets are available.
"We're going to be doing New Year's crafts. We're going to have late night snacks. We're going to be having karaoke,” said Michele Duranso with the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum.
