Young revelers who may not be able to stay awake until midnight to celebrate the New Year can ring in 2020 at Noon New Year's Eve, a free celebration for kids and families at the Missouri History Museum. Visitors will enjoy a countdown to when the clock strikes noon! But before that, they'll make New Year's Eve hats and crafts, and boogie down to live music with the band Firedog.
The Noon New Year's Eve Celebration at the Missouri History Museum is free.
December 31 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
