Noon Year's Eve Party -- just for those age 13 and under

The little ones usually don’t stay up till midnight for the New Year’s count down, so the folks over at the Kidspace Children’s Museum in Pasadena have decided to ring in the “noon year’s” instead.

Bring your tykes to see the ginormous balloon drop right at noon, toast cups of sparkling cider, and create your own noisemakers to ring in 2016.

There will be plenty of dancing with music by The Boo Hoo Crew starting at 11:30am. More info here: noon-years-eve-party-2015/

See a comet formed before your eyes!

WHEN: Tues-Sun through Jan 3

WHERE: Griffith Park, Griffith Observatory, 2800 E. Observatory Rd., Los Angeles, Ca

COST: Free

AGES: 4 & up

THE SCOOP: Every year the Griffith Observatory breaks out this special program for school holidays. Let’s Make a Comet is a 25-minute demonstration program that mixes common household ingredients with dry ice to make a small comet that’s just like the real thing. The program explores the nature of water in all its forms – solid, liquid, and gas – and discusses why water is so important to life on Earth. Recent images and discoveries from NASA missions reveal where we might find water – and possibly life – on other worlds in our solar system. It’s fascinating science, and it’s also lots of fun!

Shows are Tuesday-Friday at 2 p.m. & 4 p.m. and weekends at 1 p.m. & 3 p.m.
