Don’t miss Des Moines’ biggest NYE Party: The Silver Bell Soirée!

On December 31, the Ice Bar will be transformed into the Silver Bell Soiree. You’ll have one last opportunity to view the holiday festivities and ring in the New Year with a silver balloon drop, signature cocktails, and live music by the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

An experience unlike any other.

By day you can decorate a cookie in Mrs. Claus’s Kitchen, build a craft in Santa’s Workshop, stroll through toyland, play mini golf in Santa’s back 9, get competitive in our indoor snowball fight arena, shop the Marketplace or relax in the ice bar. In the evening, chill with your family, friends and co-workers at the Ice Bar (21+ only). All the daytime experiences will still be available for viewing. Sip on a signature cocktail, and enjoy live music and dancing, too. This is a cash-free event — only credit or debit cards will be accepted.

Check out the entertainment!

Whether you attend during the day, or at night, the entertainment lineup will provide fun for the whole family.
