Turn Back Time the Ball Drops at Nine! New Year’s Eve Celebration

December 31st from 6:30-9pm at Fairview Farms

Families today are struggling just to survive. Social, economic and time pressures have robbed parents of the ability to slow down and invest the time needed to create healthy relationships with each other and their children. This missing foundation of “intentional quality” family time has huge implications for children, marriages and the community at large.

The holiday season is no different. The holidays should be about family connection, but instead this is a time where stress, hurry and tension are more top of mind than love, relationships and purpose.

This Side UP! Family Center (a local family-strengthening non-profit) and The City of Plano’s Police and 9-1-1 Departments have teamed up to provide a solution to holiday over-stress!

ThisSideUp Family Friendly New Year's EveThe 2nd Annual, Turn Back Time the Ball Drops at Nine! New Year’s Eve Celebration at Fairview Farms in Plano, Texas is scheduled for December 31, 2012 from 6:30–9 pm and is a fun-filled, family-friendly ROCKIN’ close to 2012 without having to keep the kids up late or travel the busy streets at midnight.


  • Entertainment – Keith Coast, Magician, Illusionist, Comedian
  • Italian Dinner for Adults and Kids from Delicious Urban Eatz Restaurant
  • 9-1-1 Simulation Area and Plano Police ID/Fingerprint Station
  • GREAT Raffle Prizes and a 2013 Dream Big gift for each Family

Sarah Morris, Founding Director of This Side UP! Family Center notes, “Just like many couples who focus all of their attention on planning the perfect wedding and then get into the marriage with no plan on how to have a strong marriage…. the same is true for families during the holidays! Families spend their time on gifts, parties and decorations and rarely stop to focus on starting the New Year with Family Connection and Purpose! Since our Center’s mission is moving families from surviving to THRIVING, we’ve provided a way to finish the holiday season STRONG!”

ThisSideUp Family Friendly New Year's EveThe Landers Family of Plano told us, “Our family attended This Side Up’s New Year’s Eve celebration last year. What a great time! Great food, entertainment and Chip Waggoner was a great MC! It is always so hard with kids to stay up to midnight so having midnight come early was the best part of all! Fun without getting sleepy! We had a blast last year.”

Tickets are just $15 for adults and $10 for kids (age 2 and under free). Buy your tickets as soon as possible to ensure great seating. By doing so, you’ll give the priceless gift of Family Connection as you kick off 2013 with strength and purpose!
