CENTERPORT - Long Island families who want to ring in the new year with their kids, but fear that their children won't make it to midnight, can take advantage of other fun activities this New Year's Eve. One destination for parents who want to get their kids in the holiday spirit is the Rinx skating rink located in Port Jefferson Village Center's Harborfront Park. Children and their parents can take skating lessons with professionals, or just spend a few hours gliding about. The rink is open from the Friday after Thanksgiving to the second Sunday in March every year. Another hot destination this weekend will be the Vanderbilt Planetarium, where the Magical Mystery Tour laser show is being shown. Spectators will have a chance to hear the music of the Laser Beatles and Laser Led Zeppelin, and watch a show of lights projected onto a 60-foot dommed ceiling.Noel Gish, of the Vanderbilt Planetarium, says they have recently installed a new full-dome laser system which will be used this New Year's Eve to screen a holiday laser show.
