Generally ringing in the new year often calls for more alcohol than one person should drink in a single night. I'm just as guilty of overindulging around this time of year. But if we are being honest there are better ways to bring in 2019 than with a massive hangover. Check out some awesome alcohol-free events in the cowboy state.

If you're going to be in Jackson Hole Wy. for the new year go check out Gloworm and torchlight parade this is a super cool use of the mountain in Jackson and a light show that the family will want to come back year after year for.

The Lyric here in Casper will be hosting a family-friendly night full of music, games, and of course some delicious snacks. No need to worry about the pressure of drinking just sit back and enjoy some great music with great people.

Going all the way to New York City to watch the ball drop sounds pretty cool right? Well, why spend all that money and be surrounded by all those people when you could get a better view right here in the cowboy state. This year two towns in Wyoming are dropping the ball to ring in 2019 hit up either Cheyenne Wy or Cody Wy.

There are so many events going on through the cowboy state it's hard to choose which one you're going to be at. Nonetheless, I hope you have a fun night of celebrating leaving 2018 and kicking off 2019 with a bang! If you wind up with any photos of your night we would love to see how you spent your new years eve.
