As if the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo - with its 183 acres of indoor and outdoor exhibits filled with more than 3,000 animals representing north of 600 species - could get any better, they decide one of the best kids' parties of the holiday season.
Whether you're heading out for a date night of your own or are staying in and just don't think the kids will make it to midnight, Noon Year's Eve is an amazing way for your whole family to say goodbye to 2019 and ring in a 2020 full of possibilities.
From 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on New Year's Eve with regular admission to the zoo, you and your family will enjoy music, dancing, crafts and special live animal experiences, complete with a special countdown and ball drop on the zoo's welcome plaza starting at noon - twelve hours early!
For those looking for an extra special celebration, check out the VIP Experience at Stillwater Place 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., complete with brunch, character meet and greet, a dance part and other family-friendly activities, not to mention admission to the zoo. Tickets are limited, required for anyone age 2 and up, and can be purchased here.
