John's Incredible Pizza in Northeast Fresno is hoping to attract families who want to step into the new year with their kids, by staying open late.

"It's just something that will make it family feel and just where everybody can have a nice, safe environment," Brandon Eilts, manager at the Fresno eatery.

Kids and their parents can play arcade games and enjoy the rides until 1 a.m. "At midnight, 'Incredi-Bear' is going to come and he's going to do a parade through the whole restaurant and through the whole arcade," said Eilts.

If you'd rather celebrate the new year without the kids, there is one place you can drop them off, and they'll still be entertained. Rolling, cartwheels, handstands, these are things that a lot of kids like to do anyway.

Gymnastics Beat in Northwest Fresno will be open late on New Year's Eve. Parents can leave their kids as young as six, starting at 6 in the evening for just $20 dollars.

"It goes til one o'clock in the morning, so while the parents are out there celebrating at the stroke of midnight, right after that they can come by here and pick up their kids," said Sam Shima with Gymnastics Beat.

The kids won't miss out on the celebration as they'll have their own party at the stroke of midnight. "We have a disco ball up there, we have party hats, we have the party favors, we're going to make a lot of noise at 12 midnight."

While kids are enjoying the trampolines and climbing the ropes, adults can enjoy their night with dinner, drinks and a show!

Roger Rocka's Dinner Theater in the Tower District is offering revelers dinner, dancing and live entertainment beginning at 6 p.m.

"They watch the show then after that we have a blue street jazz band that comes on and dancing begins at that point. And then champagne toast, so we got the whole package," said Eric DeGroot, executive chef at Roger Rocka's.

A package that is selling out fast, so it's important to make reservations.
