Noon Year’s Eve in the Maryland and DC Area
A New Year Celebration for the Little Ones
Wake up!! It’s New Year’s Eve and the kiddos want to be a part. There’s still time to ring in the New Year at these Noon’s Day Eve Parties in the Maryland and DC area. The festivities begin this morning as early as early as 9:30 am and the balloons are ready to drop at 12 Noon! The events listed do not require advanced registration (but you might need to buy a ticket before you head out) and are either Free or relatively inexpensive. I’ve also listed a few family friendly events. Get the party started, you still have time!
