Ring in the New Year at Discovery Lab! Strut your stuff down the lime green carpet, and dance the day away with music and entertainment. Hands-on activities include create-your-own noisemakers and New Year’s hats. We will count down to noon and drop nearly 8,000 balloons from Discovery Lab’s lime-green ceiling to ring in the noon year!
