BALTIMORE - Your kids may have trouble staying up until midnight, but that doesn't mean they can't ring in the New Year at 12 o'clock.
Today the Maryland Science Center is hosting the fifth annual midnight “Noon Celebration.”
The party is for kids and their families to celebrate together without having to stay up late.
There will be music, arts and crafts, and even a ball drop. Baltimore band Milkshake will be there, playing their Grammy nominated kids rock and roll.
All New Year's Eve activities are free with paid admission to the Maryland Science Center.
The celebration goes from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Port Discovery is also having a noon event for children. Read about it here .
