New Year’s Eve Madness Along The Wasatch Front
Not that playing Pictionary with Aunt Ethel while Uncle Earl rails against the government and eats all the crab dip isn’t super, duper exciting, but maybe it’s time to up your game when it comes to New Year’s Eve festivities. Take a look at the huge list of Awesome below, and make your apologies to Auntie Ethel. (Better yet, bring Ethel with you and leave Uncle Earl at home with the crab dip.)

The EVE 2015 celebrations are already underway, and it’s much cheaper to just buy a 3 day pass. You can ice skate at the Gallivan Center, catch the Silent Film Festival at the Broadway Theatres, even roll around in the “Ball Room” with hundreds of balls sized 6 inches to 6 feet across–all for the price of the one ticket.
