I remember as a child always looking forward to New Year’s Eve. It was another chance for me to try to stay up with the grown-ups until mid-night to celebrate. And almost every year until I was about 10, I failed at my goal (there are years recently that I have had trouble reaching that same goal...).

I would always fall asleep in front of the TV and wake up around 2 or 3 in the morning in my bed, disappointed that I had missed the ball drop and the fun (although looking back, I wish I had appreciated the sleep I got a lot more, but that is a story for a different time).

Well if you have little ones who are looking forward to celebrating the New Year and you don’t want them up late, or they can’t make it until mid-night, then here is something you might like. The Owensboro Museum is hosting Noon Year’s Eve.

As the name suggests, the little ones will be able to celebrate the New Year at noon instead of mid-night. The event starts at 9:30am and there will be face painting, they can make their own party hat and noise maker, Mitch Lumen will present the Science of Cold program, and DJ Prof G will be there as well.

At noon there will be a big balloon drop to celebrate Noon Year’s Eve! For more information you can click here.
