(ABC 6 News) – Kids also had some New Year’s Eve fun at the SPARKLE Noon Year’s Eve event at Spark Children’s Museum in Rochester on Friday.

There was a ball drop at noon for the kids who can’t make it until midnight.

“We do a bunch of fun activities with them. So the kids got to make snow and play with it and build little snowmen. So it’s really cool to be able to work some of our mission into what we do today so we always are trying to work STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) into it so having arts and those hands-on science experiments too is really awesome,” Julia Hurley, Marketing & Program Coordinator at Spark, said.

Both of the sessions on Friday sold out.

It was so cool to see the kids come in with their families and their little sparkly outfits, they were dressed their best today. And it’s cool seeing them form little friendships with the other kids. They’re going around doing our scavenger hunt looking for things together and kind of working as a team which is really cool to see,” Hurley said.

Events at Spark are a great way for kids and parents to bond.

“It’s awesome to see the parents engage with their kids too. They’re making snow with them, they’re coloring and it’s just a really cool thing to do. It’s so cold outside it’s great to have these indoor options where families can come and bond and play together,” Hurley added.
