Metro families celebrate 'noon year's eve' at the Durham

"Noon Year's Eve" featured music, activities, bouncy houses, face painting, and more.

The day was filled with plenty of crafts, fun, food and even a balloon drop right at noon.

Kids under one get in for free, otherwise tickets are $15.

"[It's something] the kids really, really enjoy", Knight said, and this year was no exception.

New Year's at Noon was about ringing in 2018 for those who might be asleep when the clock strikes midnight, or who might fall asleep trying to make it there. "It's an affordable and fun event where the kids get to participate in a ball drop without having to stay up until midnight".

More than 275 people - all of them children and families - attended the event at the Children's Museum in the City of Poughkeepsie, according to event organizers.

The Children's Museum says some activities will be moved inside due to the cold weather but advise attendees to dress for the outdoors just in case. "Parents can bring their kids out and not keep the kids up late, but still let them have a New Year's Eve experience".

The Tony's Pizza Events Center, Salina Parks & Rec, and Rocking M Media hosted the 4th annual "Noon Year's Eve" event.

As the kids and families moved around, some stopped to dance to the music or play an impromptu game of tag.

Majka came to the New Year's at Noon event with her 3-year-old son Jimmie.

"It's nice because we can just sit here", mother Melissa Frascarelli said, "and they can run all over".
