For the tiniest party animals
Noon Year’s Eve, Dec. 31st – 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
If you have a little bit in tow, you may not be down with pushing the bedtimes back (after all, who wants to start January 1 with a cranky, sleep-deprived kiddo?!). Enter Noon Year’s Eve, a family-friendly version that rings in 2020 midday instead of at midnight! Held at The Hotel at Avalon and Alpharetta Conference Center, the daytime celebration promises kid-centric fun like DJ’d tunes, face painting, crafts, and a countdown to 12 p.m. complete with a huge balloon drop! Noon Year’s Eve will also feature face painting and dazzle stations, New Year’s crafts, tasty complimentary snacks from cotton candy and popcorn booths, a sweet donut wall, and photo opps at the special Noon Year’s Eve photo booth and balloon wall. Trade the champagne toast for a sugar rush and prepare to oooh and ahhh over the cuteness overload on offer at this adorable event!
