Celebrate New Years Eve at Science Central with Countdown to Noon
(December 10, 2020) – Once again, Science Central will be throwing its family-friendly New Year’s Eve celebration, Countdown to Noon, sponsored by Lake City Bank.
Countdown to Noon takes the excitement of the holiday’s countdown to midnight and recreates it at noon for the sake of New Year’s Eve partiers young and old with early bedtimes. The event is set to run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 31.
The noon countdown at Science Central has traditionally culminated with an indoor balloon drop. However, this year, in the interests of giving attendees room to socially distance, the countdown will take place outside. While there will be no balloons, this year’s countdown is sure to have attendees “bubbling” with excitement.
In addition to the noon countdown, there will be indoor celebrations at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 2 p.m. as we count down to midnight with cities around the world. Science Central and Lake City Bank have designated the 1 p.m. celebration as sensory-friendly with a quiet countdown.
The cost to attend Countdown to Noon is Science Central’s regular admission fee, $10. Admission is free for ages 2 and under and Science Central members.
While Allen County currently has a “Red” score on Indiana’s weekly COVID-19 Dashboard, Science Central is temporarily limiting the number of visitors in the building each hour through the use of timed tickets. As such, Science Central strongly encourages the purchase of timed tickets online. Not only will you reserve your admission time, but you will save $1 per ticket. As always, members get in free, but will also need to reserve their timed tickets.
