  1. Sips Under the Sea: Black & White New Year’s Celebration

This event is held at the Georgia Aquarium. Who doesn’t love bringing in the new year in one of Atlanta’s favorites! This is after hour event so no kids there.

Join them as you toast along with all the whale sharks, jellyfish, and others.

Event time: 8:30 p.m. – 1:00 a.m.
