Ring in the New Year… at Noon!

Let the countdown to 2016 begin! Bring the entire family to the Toledo Zoo on New Year’s Eve to ring in the New Year a little early… at noon!

Let’s be honest; midnight is just too late for the younger party-hat wearers. To provide the same fun festivities during day-light hours for their pint-sized guests, the Toledo Zoo will celebrate Noon Year’s Eve, sponsored by Meijer. This family-friendly event, focusing on making 2016 a greener year, will take place Thursday, December 31 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Together with family and friends, the Zoo will celebrate the stroke of noon with the rising of a recycling ball, a cascade of biodegradable confetti, apple juice toast and a chorus of ‘Auld Lang Syne.’ Throughout the celebration, guests can make their conservation reZOOlutions, enjoy craft time, an ice carving demonstration, animal feeds / enrichment, along with the ice slide and Winter Village. This is the perfect way for the whole family to send 2015 out with a bang!
