Cleveland Metroparks Zoo celebrates Noon Year's Eve

Activities included a countdown to noon with a firefly drop (the state's insect) and balloon drop. Many screamed, cheered and shook homemade noisemakers as the countdown ended and balloons and glitter fell the the floor.

And for families looking for a memento from the New Year, a New Year's Eve-themed backdrop with stage lights on either side of it provides a way for people to take cool pictures to remember the night.

At noon on New Year's Eve Sunday, dozens of kids leapt into the air and reached for falling balloons as if it were midnight.

"She understands what New Year's is for the first time this year", said her mother, Jessica Watterson, who was chasing her.

Kumari started arguing with the lady constable and in the video clip that went viral, she was seen slapping her first. She holds the office of All India Congress Committee secretary and, additionally, is AICC in-charge of Punjab.

As the kids and families moved around, some stopped to dance to the music or play an impromptu game of tag.

For Melissa McGuinness and her 4-year-old son, Noah, Saturday's New Year's at Noon was a first.

"It was a lot of fun", Lojewski said. She said she was pleasantly surprised with the turnout. And, McGuinness added, it's a great chance for them to experience what New Year's Eve is like without having to stay up too late.

"Even some adults don't want to have to stay up until midnight and a lot of times kids and adults don't get to do that New Year's celebration together, so this offers an opportunity for that". "They get to enjoy part of New Year's like their parents do, and then hopefully the parents can also go out later and enjoy themselves".
