Dec 31-Noon Year's Eve

Parents- Why keep your kids up until Midnight on New Year's Eve, when you can bring them to the Discovery Center to ring in the new year?! New Year's Eve can be just as much fun for families too. We will be hosting our annual NOON Year's Eve on December 31st from 11:00am-1:00pm. This is a fun family event to ring in 2018 and a great alternative to keeping your kids up until midnight to see the ball drop. Here's what we have planned for you:

  • Dynamic Science demos
  • Crafts, including New Year's hats and noise makers
  • Karaoke
  • Ginger ale and cookies to toast to the new year
  • Fun exhibits, including our Fall traveling exhibit (which closes in early January), Travel Adventure
  • And a giant balloon drop (in 2 locations!), courtesy of Sonic Amarillo, as as we count down to 12 (noon)! Each balloon is filled with a prize too.

Don't miss this fun family event to celebrate a brand new year! Doors open at 10:00 am.

Admission: Members $2, Non-Members $2 plus regular admission.

Thank you to our sponsors Pete's Car Smart KIA, Sonic Amarillo, KAMR Local 4 and FOX 14!
