Celebrate San Antonio
Spend the last hours of 2012 dancing to live music, munching on great food and sipping cold beverages at the Celebrate San Antonio New Year's Eve party. It shouldn't be hard to find. Just follow the crowd of 250,000 revelers to La Villita off South Alamo. Be sure to stick around until midnight to see the breathtaking fireworks show light up the sky around the Tower of the Americas.
Watch the Spurs beat the Nets
The Spurs tip off against the Nets at 7:30 p.m., which means you'll still have plenty of time after the game to grab a bite to eat or head out to a New Year's Eve party of your choice! Click here for ticket information.

Midnight too late?
If the ball drop is way past your little one's bedtime, consider the Kids' Countdown at the San Antonio Children's Museum. The party starts at 10 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m. Be ready to flick your flutter-fetti stick as the ball drops at high noon! Oh, and don't worry -- it's sparkling juice in those cups, not Champagne.
