Ring in the Noon Year at the Science Museum of Virginia

noon years eveThe Science Museum of Virginia invites the community to participate in a family-friendly holiday celebration, Noon Year’s Eve, on December 31. Join unique festivities to ring in the new New Year, where revelers don’t count down to midnight – they count down to noon.

With a distinctive ball drop – that boasts not one but 2,015 bouncy balls dropped from three stories above – and confetti cannons, Noon Year’s Eve presents a quirky twist on traditional holiday festivities. Guests create their very own noisemakers and join in a juice toast as the clock counts down to midday.

Special activities include launching ping pong balls using liquid Nitrogen, building geodesic globes like the iconic ball dropped in Times Square and learning about different cultural New Year traditions and practices from around the world. Richmond Family Magazine’s Photo Booth will be onsite for families to take commemorative pictures and guests will be able to write their resolutions on a giant banner displayed in the Museum.

Noon Year’s Eve is included with exhibit admission. Tickets are $11 with $1 discounts for ages 4-12 and 60+. For more information visitwww.smv.org.
