For the young ones in the crowd who can’t make it up until midnight on the 31st, Port Discovery has it’s Noontime New Year from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm on December 31, 2009 in Downtown Baltimore.

At noon, the countdown will happen with Maryland Public Television favorite Bob the Vid Tech, Bob Heck.

Kids will celebrate with milk & cookies and enjoy multi cultural celebrations from around the world!

There will be many activities including origami, calligraphy, pasta making, mask creating, and much more. There will be performances by dance troupes and singing groups — a huge celebration all day.

This should be a fun time for all, especially those who have been off from school since December 23rd (or earlier.) A chance to get out, enjoy, and celebrate the New Year in a very different way!

Just another great reason to play, work, and live in Downtown Baltimore!


Port Discovery is a Children’s Museum located at 35 Market Place, Baltimore, MD 21202. Admission is $12.95 for children aged 2-102!
