'Noon Year's Eve' Event Set at Carousel for Dec. 29

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the Pottstown Children's Discovery Museum. 

The Pottstown Children’s Discovery Center will be hosting a 'Noon Year’s Eve' Party for the whole family on Saturday, Dec. 29th at the Pottstown Carousel, 30 W. King St..

Festivities kick-off at 10 a.m. with crafts and games for kids. Every half hour a new activity will mark the countdown to Noon Years, culminating with a balloon drop.

This event is geared toward young children ages 2-10 and will feature piñatas, cookie decorating, and story time.

The first 25 families to purchase tickets will be entered into a raffle to win an autographed copy of The Snowy Nap by author Jan Brett, which will be the featured story along with hedgehog themed facts and crafts. The price of admission includes water, hotdogs, and one carousel ride.

For the past year, museum Founders, Beth Desch, Jennifer Brown, and Karen Hudson, have been endeavoring to make a hands-on learning experience a reality here in Pottstown.

PCDC will partner with local schools to help bring their curriculum to life through exhibits and activities that emphasize learning through play.

At this time, two potential building sites have been identified and the Co-Founders are fundraising $1.8 million dollars to secure a location with the intent to open in 2021.

The museum aims to fuel an economic Renaissance by establishing Pottstown as family-friendly tourism destination.

In the near future, families could make a day-trip to the museum, ride the Carousel, have dinner at a local restaurant, and then finish their evening with a performance at Steel River Playhouse.

The possibilities are endless with new businesses opening in Pottstown every year and the nearby convenience of Manatawny Green Miniature Golf and Colebrookdale Railroad, and Memorial Park festivals.

Noon Year’s Eve tickets can be purchased at Tickets for adults are $10, children $7, and families $25.
