Countdown to Noon

December 31, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm EST

Please note: The Museum is closed on New Year’s Eve. This event is held off-site at the East Lyme Community Center.

Ring in the New Year a little early with a 250+ balloon drop at noon! Join the Museum and East Lyme Parks & Recreation for southeastern Connecticut’s premier New Year’s event for children and families!

Start 2023 off with a one-of-a-kind experience! Wildlife Encounters of New Hampshire is coming to Countdown to Noon! Children will squeal with excitement as they meet animals such as a serval cat, porcupine, and arctic fox, along with interactive animals such as a mini pig, pygmy goat, and giant rabbit.

In addition to our animal show at 10:30am & 1pm, we’re having our fellow community organizations come with some hands-on crafts and activities for all ages. Plus special guest appearances from Captain America & Black Panther!

The Rolling Tomato will be on hand with pizza to purchase. And you can savor the event for years to come with a photo from our photo booth.

Pre-registration required. No tickets will be sold at the event. Limited tickets available.
