Events in Richmond This Week: December 30, 2018 – January 6, 2019

this week It’s hard to believe that the holidays are behind us and the new year is just around the corner, but believe it or not, this week officially marks the end of 2018! Here at Richmond Mom, we hope that your holidays were filled with family, fun, and laughter – or that at the very least, you survived! With only a couple of days left in 2018, we hope that you’ve got plenty of fun ways to ring in the new year. If you’re still looking for family-friendly events, be sure to check out our Guide to Family-Friendly New Year’s Eve Events. Or if you were lucky enough to book a babysitter for the night, try our Best New Year’s Eve Events for Parents in Richmond.

In the meantime, get ready to wrap up the old and welcome the new this week with events and activities for the whole family. Take a look at some of our highlighted events below, then visit our full events calendar for family-friendly events this week and throughout the month!
