Ring in 2014 at the Toledo Zoo's Noon Year's Eve
TOLEDO - Everyone loves to ring in the New Year, but for little ones midnight is just too late.
That's why the Toledo Zoo presents Noon Year's Eve on Dec. 31. The family will watch the ball rise at the stroke of noon, sing a chorus of "Auld Lang Syne" and toast the New Year with family-friendly fun.
Activities run 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Enjoy music, games and activities with Radio Disney, watch an ice-carving demonstration and sign some New Year's ReZOOlutions - simple things your family can do to make 2014 a little greener.
The award-winning children's zoo, Nature's Neighborhood, will be open.
This is also the last chance to enjoy the outdoor ice rink. On Dec. 31 only, the ice rink opens early, at 11 a.m., for one last skate. Visitor can bring their own skates or rent them.
These events, along with animal feeding and enrichment demonstrations across the zoo, are included free with regular zoo admission.
For more information, visit toledozoo.org/noonyears.
Dec. 31 is important for another reason, too; it's the last day of the Lights Before Christmas.
The lights open at 3 p.m. daily; closing hours vary. Toledo Zoo members receive unlimited free Monday-Thursday visits to the Lights, plus one free weekend visit.
Registration is also open for the springtime Medical Mutual Dart Frog Dash. It's a fun 5K run/walk through the zoo and surrounding areas, with a separate 1K "fun run" for the kids.
Sign up at Noon Year's Eve and get help every step of the way, with regular tips on training and nutrition - right up to race day.
In December, the Toledo Zoo is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily (closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day) and is located on the Anthony Wayne Trail, four miles south of downtown Toledo.
The Lights Before Christmas runs through Dec. 31, starting at 3 p.m. daily; closing hours vary. For more information, visit toledozoo.org or call 419.385.4040.
Lucas County residents are admitted free of charge on non-holiday Mondays from 10 a.m. to noon. ID showing proof of residency is required.
