Enjoy family-friendly New Year’s events across Denver

DENVER — There are several family-friendly events across the Denver metro area to ring in the New Year.

Noon Year’s Eve

If you’re looking for some family fun on Sunday, can check out the Children’s Museum “Noon Year’s Eve” celebrations.

Activities for children include countdowns and ball drops every hour as well as bubble wrap fireworks.

Kids under 1 get in for free, otherwise tickets are $15.

The Children’s Museum said some activities will be moved inside because of the cold weather but advises attendees to dress for the outdoors just in case.

Zoo Year’s Eve

You can also take the family for some “Zoo Years Eve” fun at the Denver Zoo.

Not only can you take the kids on a safari through the Denver Zoo lights, including more than 150 illuminated animal sculptures, the zoo will also have an early New Year’s Eve countdown at 9 p.m. so you can get the little ones in bed early.

Noon Year Run

If you feel like getting in a good run Sunday, wrap up 2017 on a high note with runners at the 33rd annual “Noon Year Run” at Washington Park.

The “Resolution 5K” benefits Volunteers of America which serves the most vulnerable people in the community.

Recipients of care include seniors, veterans, the homeless and people with disabilities.

Pre-registration starts at 10:30 a.m. Sunday and the race will kick off at noon.  Runners will meet at the South High School cafeteria. Registration is available online.
