Fernbank Museum Rings in the New Year with Noon Year’s Eve
ATLANTA, December 17, 2014 – Fernbank Museum of Natural History (fernbankmuseum.org) announces a New Year’s celebration appropriate for the entire family. On Wednesday, December 31 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Fernbank will host games, a craft, a resolution station, DJ Willy Wow and a balloon drop. The event, celebrated at noon instead of midnight, caters to youngsters who cannot always celebrate past their bedtime.
At noon, guests will be invited to toast to the Noon Year with their very own “mocktail” made from GoGo Squeeze Applesauce as over 2,000 balloons cascade from the ceiling of Fernbank’s Great Hall. DJ Willy Wow will lead the countdown to the Noon Year, along with hosting games and dancing throughout the event.
It would not be a proper New Year’s celebration without party hats, and guests will be able to craft their very own using cups, tinsel and twine. As guests celebrate the Noon Year, they will also be invited to learn about New Year’s traditions from around the world through a special matching game. The event will also include a festive New Year’s Eve-themed dinosaur photo-stop.
To round out the event, families will have the opportunity to share their resolutions at a special “resolution station,” where they will be encouraged to take a selfie to share on social media using #FernbankMuseum.
