Don't let the New Year pass you by at night while you're snoozing! Bring the whole family to Cleveland Metroparks Zoo's eighth annual Noon Year's Eve party and celebrate the New Year 12 hours early!
This family-friendly event runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, December 31 and features live entertainment, crafts, �ReZoolutions� and a special countdown to noon complete with a ball drop over the Welcome Plaza.
The party includes a crew of charismatic critters in a special Noon Year's Eve Wild Animal Show, music, dancing, an ice-carving demonstration, costumed characters and more. Noon Year's Eve activities are FREE with Zoo admission.
