First Night is an amazing experience and truly offers something for everyone. We always take advantage of the opportunity to see Circus Smircus at an incredible price. The free classes at the FlynnSpace are also great and because they start earlier than everything else you manage to get prime parking for the evening. With my 7 and 3 year old we like to go nice and early before the crowds really get going. We've put in a full day of fun and they still make their bedtimes. In a few years I'm sure we'll be catching the midnight fireworks! Buy tickets early for an even better deal!...more
