Celebrate the ‘Noon Year’ at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo | Events
CLEVELAND, OH - Bring your pint-sized party animals to Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and let them dance till the break of noon!
The entire family can celebrate the New Year a little early at the Zoo’s annual Noon Year’s Eve party from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, December 31 featuring kid-friendly versions of year-end traditions.
The seventh annual Noon Year’s Eve will ring in 2013 with a dance party hosted by Radio Disney, a countdown to noon complete with a ball drop on the Welcome Plaza, crafts, Get Close animal encounters, “Safe Rides for All Kids” activities and plenty of photo opportunities with the Zoo’s costumed characters.
Visitors also can make their New Year’s ReZOOlutions and see a special holiday performance of Professor Wylde’s Live Animal Show.
Visitors to Noon Year’s Eve are encouraged to arrive early as traffic delays around the Zoo may occur before the noontime countdown and ball drop.
