Ring in 2023: Wichita's NYE Parties
What better way to ring out the old and bring in the new than with a party? Wichita's clubs, bars and venues have plenty of New Year's Eve party options, whether you want to dance the night away under a mirror ball or hang out with elves (yep, keep reading).
Prefer something more low-key or want to celebrate with the kids? "Noon Year's Eve" parties are increasingly popular—perfect if it's getting harder and harder to stay awake each year!
