Weekend Planner: Kid-Friendly New Year's
Giant PEEPS Chick at PEEPS Fest
What are you doing New Year's Eve? Kids who can't stay up till midnight can ring in the new year early.
Countdown to the "noon" year mid-day at the Please Touch Museum & O'Doodles Toy Store in Phila., the Garden State Discovery Museum in Cherry Hill, NJ and the Brandywine Zoo in Wilmington, DE.
The Blue Cross RiverRink, Longwood Gardens and Bethlehem's PEEPS Fest are among other New Year's parties featuring fun (and fireworks!) for families.
On New Year's Day, don't miss the annual Phila. tradition, the Mummers parade. Stop inside the Kimmel Center for free concerts, balloons, face painting & crafts.
