Forget the babysitter with these family friendly NYE events
For some, New Year's Eve is all about getting dolled up for the best party in Perth and finding someone to pash at midnight. For parents, it's all about getting out for a few hours with the kids, oohing and aahing at the fireworks and getting home to your pyjamas well before all that craziness begins after the clock strikes midnight. So, if you fall into the parental category, here are the top family-friendly New Year's Eve events in Perth for 2017.
