There’s no need for kids to stay up until midnight as New Roc City rings in the New Year early with a Times Square-inspired countdown to noon featuring a thrilling release of 3,000 festive, brightly-colored balloons. Revelers will gather in the atrium of New Roc City for the 9th Annual Ring in the New Year at Noon on Monday, December 31 from 10:30a.m. to 12:30p.m.
The event is a fun-filled way for families with children ages 2-10 to experience the excitement of ringing in the New Year complete with face painting, arts and crafts, kiddy rides, clowns, wheel of chance, board breaking challenge, games, snacks, culminating with an exciting countdown as the clock strikes noon.
This year, the event will support the New Rochelle Public Library through a $10 donation per family of four. Chartered in 1894, the Library is a community resource that seeks to improve the life of every citizen in New Rochelle. It is dedicated to encouraging learning in all stages of life, to protecting intellectual freedom, and to providing fair and equal access to information. The Library offers a wide range of community services and programs tailored to a diverse audience and the 79,000 residents of New Rochelle.
