New Year's Eve is a night of staying up late to countdown to the new year, but for little ones who can't stay up that late, officials with a South Jersey museum had an event just for them.
On Monday, December 31st, the Garden State Discovery Museum put on a special event called New Year's at Noon giving youngsters in the area a chance to ring in the new year before their bedtime.
Officials say the event was a great way to give kids and their parents a way to celebrate the new year together.
"We try to make it as accessible [and] as easy as possible and something that the whole family can enjoy together," said Veronica Clothier, assistant programs manager, Garden State Discovery Museum. "Because this is something that's fun for the parents and for the kids."
The museum's New Year's at Noon event included a dance party and singing, along with regular museum activities.
They also did two countdowns throughout the day, giving kids a chance to share the excitement of counting down to 2019.
