COLUMBIA, PA: Ring in the New Year with Father Time at the center of time—The National Watch and Clock Museum. The Museum’s New Year’s Eve at Noon event on December 31 is the only local New Year’s Eve party designed specifically for children during daylight hours.

Children will learn about the passage of time using traditional adult activities presented in a child-friendly manner. As part of the traditional celebration, the Museum will host a countdown with Father Time, complete with a balloon drop at the strike of noon. From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Father Time will lead guests in a dance party full of fun and swinging music.

Activities include time to:

  • Make New Year’s hats out of recycled materials to wear as you celebrate the new year
  • Pose in the Museum’s New Year’s photo booth while you show off your party hat
  • Play a New Year’s trivia game testing your knowledge of New Year’s traditions and history
  • Participate in family challenges like Minute to Win It as you race against the clock
  • Enjoy a special New Year’s Eve story time
  • Create a time capsule to remember 2017
  • Write your resolutions for 2018 on Resolution Wall
  • Decorate a cookie like a clock face with Rivertownes PA, USA, and enjoy it as a snack afterward
  • Accessorize with face painting

Joining in the celebration will also be a mob of mascots, including Turkey Hill’s “Hilda” and Columbia Fire Co.’s “Sparky” with his fire truck!
