Residents and visitors are invited to ring in the new year on Myrtle Avenue with two very special events.

Noon Year’s Eve

On Dec. 31, gather in Library Park for Noon Year’s Eve. Since midnight may be too late for young children to stay awake, Noon Year’s Eve was created to celebrate New Year’s Eve during the daytime. Activities include story time, live music, arts and crafts, inflatable obstacle course, games and a special countdown to Noon Year’s Eve. All ages are welcomed to participate in family fun activities.

This event is completely free to the public and will take place in Library Park at 321 S. Myrtle Ave., from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
