Ring in 2019 with an early countdown that the whole family can enjoy!

Kids love ringing in the new year just as much as adults but are often unable to stay up late enough to celebrate. At this family-friendly event featuring a variety of activities for children, we will welcome 2019 with an early countdown at 8:45 p.m. so that everyone can join in the fun of this festive tradition. Activities include:

  • new Year's Eve-themed crafts
  • family-friendly games and activities
  • a pot-a-plant station for kids to pot their own fun plants to take home 
  • and more!

The celebration is free with regular paid admission and all ages are invited!
