“RING IN THE “NOON YEAR” AT THE DISCOVERY MUSEUM

Children invited to “sparkle” on December 31st

An annual tradition at the Discovery Museum, all kids and families are invited to the Museum on Saturday, December 31st to help ring in the “Noon Year.”  Since not everyone can stay up until midnight, why not have the fun of counting down but do it before nap time?  Our theme for the Noon Year’s celebration, “Sparkle at the Museum,” invites children to wear their glitz and glam attire while they enjoy all the fun the day has to hold.  The Museum opens at 10 am and will have noisy crafts to make, sparkling cider to enjoy, and everyone can throw confetti when it hits high noon!. Children will also have the opportunity to decorate “Noon Year” hats fit for a king and queen! Kids love the chance to be part of a big crowd and participate in the counting down and it’s one of the Discovery Museum’s favorite annual celebrations.  This great family activity is free and is included with admission or your annual membership.  The Museum will close at 1 pm on December 31st and will re-open for business-as-usual on January 2, 2012.  Spend your final hours of 2011 with your family at the Discovery Museum and kick of 2012 at High Noon!
