Noon Years Eve - Now at 2pm!
Ring in the New Year Early!
December 31st from 11:00am - 2:15pm
Special activities and events featuring DIY noisemakers, a cardboard parade, and a one-of a kind kickoff to start 2024!
Celebrate the new year, but without having to wait until midnight! Join us for great activities as we count down to 2pm and celebrate the New Year with special activities, bubbles, noisemakers and a grand parade! This is the event people look forward to every year, so get here early and secure your spot for fun!
Don't miss this popular yearly tradition! Come early and spend the morning creating a cardboard and duct tape float or costume for the big parade - we'll even provide supplies. Family-friendly costumes are encouraged to add to the fun! At 1:45 the Grand Marshal will lead you and your creations in a parade through the building for all to see and celebrate. The end of the parade leads right into the special 2pm New Year Countdown!
NEW YEAR COUNTDOWN
Ring in the new year with a bang! Dropping a ball is kinda boring, so we do it BIG with toilet paper cannons, DIY noisemakers, balloons, bubbles, and even... EXPLOSIONS as we do a special countdown to 2024 at 2pm!
All additional activities and special supplies are included with your admission or membership entry for the day.
