Children have a tough time staying up until midnight (or at least some of them do!) to ring in a brand spanking New Year. That's why the Children's Museum of Acadiana celebrates New Year's at NOON!

The 17th Annual New Year's Noon Carnival & Countdown is not just a big celebration when the clock strikes 12:00 noon. They feature outdoor game booths and crafts, face painting and kiddie cuisine. Children can even make their own noise makers and lariats!

Admission is $6 per person and tickets to play the games and outdoor activities are 25 cents each. For more information, visit www.cmalaf.org.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
