Shortly after Christmas, the same question arises every year: What are we going to do on New Year's Eve?
Here’s what some California amusement and theme parks have planned for the last night of 2011:
Disneyland in Anaheim will stay open until 2 a.m. with live bands, DJs and midnight fireworks. Across the way, Disney California Adventurewill remain open until 1 a.m. with the ElecTRONica dance party and a midnight showing of "World of Color," the nighttime water spectacular.
Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park will stay open until 1 a.m. with live bands, DJs, a comedian, holiday shows and midnight fireworks.
Universal Studios Hollywood's CityWalk will feature live bands and DJ music with a fireworks finale at midnight. Parking for the event costs $45. Most of the shopping mall's clubs throw New Year's Eve parties. Although the theme park closes at 9 p.m., the WaterWorld theater will be seated on a first-come basis for fireworks.
