The Children’s Museum of Acadiana will once again be hosting its annual New Year’s Noon Celebration on December 30th and 31st  from. In addition to our hands-on exhibits, we will have many carnival style games outside for our guests to enjoy.  The highlight of the event is when we ring in the new year a few hours early, by counting down to noon and showering everyone with confetti.

The 24th Annual “New Year’s Noon” will be a little different this year at the Children’s Museum of Acadiana. Instead of one big event, the Museum will offer six, smaller socially distant “New Year’s Noon “celebrations.  In order to welcome in the New Year at the stroke of “midnight”. CMA “Airways” will travel to Honduras, East Africa, Portugal, South Asia, Ireland, and the USA to celebrate each country’s countdown to midnight in Central Standard Time.

Guests may choose to attend one or multiple two (2) hour session to welcome in 2021.  Tickets must be purchased in advance,” explained Lore Linton, CMA Director of Guest Services. “Each event session will highlight the designated country, be limited to 80 guests, access to carnival games and a confetti blast countdown.

 This very popular event relies heavily on the assistance from volunteers.  Volunteers will be assisting our visitors in our exhibits, as well as helping to facilitate many of our outdoor carnival games.

Volunteer shift opportunities are as followed: We are hoping to gain at least 25 volunteers per shift.
