A large group of kids blew noise makers and squealed with delight as hundreds of balloons dropped Sunday at the Noon Year's Eve celebration at the Kansas Children's Discovery Center.

As the kids and families moved around, some stopped to dance to the music or play an impromptu game of tag.

And for families looking for a memento from the New Year, a New Year's Eve-themed backdrop with stage lights on either side of it provides a way for people to take cool pictures to remember the night. Many were dressed up for the celebration, and some even had face paint for the festivities.

Christmas at Union Station is an age-old tradition for many metro families, and Saturday's Noon Year's Eve was just another way to continue the tradition.




New Year's at Noon was about ringing in 2018 for those who might be asleep when the clock strikes midnight, or who might fall asleep trying to make it there. And, McGuinness added, it's a great chance for them to experience what New Year's Eve is like without having to stay up too late.

"I sounded like a lot of fun", she said. "There's not a lot for kids to do on New Year's and this is a great way for them to ring in the New Year while staying warm and learning".

"Especially on a day like today when it's so cold outside, it's just nice to get out and participate in one of the really fun events that the community has going on", said Katie Brown, mother of 2-year-old Elliot Werkowitch.
