REGINA – While the adults anxiously await the countdown to midnight, New Years came a little early for some youngsters Thursday afternoon.
Close to 900 people attended the Noon Year’s Eve at the Saskatchewan Science Centre.
Families were treated to a traditional countdown, science exhibits and fun entertainment.
“We think that it is really important for families to celebrate things together and a lot of times kids are too young or unable to stay up until midnight. So this is a way for them to countdown to noon, the other 12 o’clock on New Year’s Eve and to be able to celebrate the coming in of the New Year together,” said the Coordinator of Science Experience at the science centre.
Organizers say the event has become a yearly tradition and that year after year the turnout becomes larger.Follow @BrandonGonez
