The balloons were released at noon, allowing children to take part in the celebration of the New Year.

Activities for the kiddos include countdowns and ball drops every hour as well as bubble wrap fireworks. One of the bags didn't immediately open, with many balloons getting caught inside, but both volunteers and kids didn't mind batting around the bag until they all cascaded to the floor.

"Last year, we had like 200 people in our lobby, or 300 people in our lobby", Garcia said.

Some of the youngsters calmly toasted the New Year by clinking plastic glasses filled with apple cider, while many others raucously pounced on the fallen balloons to pop as many as possible during what can only be described as a full-on frenzy.

Megan Lojewski said she and her family didn't plan on staying up until midnight so the event was a good option.

The children's museum was closed to the public Sunday in order to accommodate the event.

"I think it's a great way for friends and family to come and celebrate the New Year together", Mandi Ried, Director of Visitor Experience said.

The event was geared toward children having fun, but they also had the opportunity to learn new things. It's a party that kids can enjoy. They fed the blocks into the device and watched as they twirled in the air.

"Nobody falls asleep or anything, and we can just have fun", guest Ella Lighthart said.

The Tony's Pizza Events Center, Salina Parks & Rec, and Rocking M Media hosted the 4th annual "Noon Year's Eve" event.
