ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Discovery Center Museum will host a kid-style New Year’s Eve party on Tuesday, December 31 from 12:30 to 4:30 pm.
Science, games, music, crafts and art come together as Discovery Center counts down to midnight - somewhere in the world - at 1:00, 2:00, 3:00 and 4:00 pm during Countdown to Fun! Ring in the New Year with music from Kantorei, the singing boys of Rockford. And no New Year’s Eve party would be complete without hats, confetti, and party favors to add to the festivities! The event is sponsored in part by SwedishAmerican Health System.
