EUGENE, Ore. -- The science factory rang in the New Year early with their annual Midnight at Noon event on Sunday.
The event is put on every year for families with little ones who may not have a chance to ring in the New Year at midnight.
Organizers said they wanted to celebrate another trip around the sun for the planet. Attendees like Eilzabeth Miller said they went to the event to avoid staying up late.
”These kids have to get to bed early and we can't really afford to stay up later than we need to," she said."We might be up at midnight with the new born, but we might not be, hopefully not."
Event organizers said they are also excited to introduce new activities for children next year.
