New Year's revelers of all ages (even those with a bedtime!) are invited to ring in the new year a little bit early with a special Noontime New Year's Eve celebration at The Magic House on December 31.
Visitors will participate in a variety of traditional New Year's Eve festivities including a countdown to noon with the dropping of a sparkly New Year's Eve ball.
Any New Year's Eve party wouldn't be complete without a dance floor and dancing tunes! Kids can dance the day away, then pose in a 2019-themed photo booth filled with fun props, and accessories.
Noontime New Year's Eve activities are free with museum admission and no reservations are required.
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Magic House in Kirkwood. More information: magichouse.org
