The Mississippi Children’s Museum (MCM) is planning to celebrate the new year by hosting a special Noon Year’s Eve event on Saturday, December 31.
From 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., attendees will be invited to create a noisemaker, countdown clock, and New Year’s hat, as well as add New Year’s wishes to the Wishing Wall. Festivities will also include countdowns at 10:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 11:30 a.m. and a grand finale at noon with confetti cannons, a traditional style countdown, and a balloon drop.
Noon Year’s Eve is included with $10 general admission and free with museum membership. The museum will be closed on New Year’s Day.
MCM’s holiday exhibit, Journey to the North Pole, will be open until January 8.
