Irvine, California (December 4, 2018)—Pretend City Children’s Museum is hosting their annual “It’s Midnight Somewhere” Noon Year’s Eve Bash on Dec. 31st! The New Year occurs at different times in cities all around the world. This celebration allows young children to ring in the New Year at the reasonable hours of 10 am, 12 pm, 2 pm, and 4 pm.

“Our annual New Year’s Eve celebration allows kids to embrace this holiday unlike any other place in the area,” said Sandra Bolton Griffin, Executive Director of Pretend City Children’s Museum. “It provides families with a lively and safe place to celebrate the New Year!”

Pretend City Children’s Museum aims to make this “adult holiday” a family holiday.   Our event helps children learn how to tell time, grasp the concept of this widely celebrated holiday, and make memories celebrating with their families for years to come! Guests of all ages will decorate their own party hats and noisemakers, as well as take part in a one of a kind confetti dance party.

A New Year’s countdown will take place just before each of the times listed below:

Pretend City Children’s Museum features a small, interconnected city designed to “build better brains” through purposeful play, hands-on learning experiences, role playing, and educational programming. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization serving all children, it depends on community-based funding and guest support. Through interactive exhibits and activities guided by a highly trained professional staff, children learn foundational math, reading and science skills, while fostering curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, organization, teamwork, self-confidence and socialization. The museum is a unique community resource offering developmental screenings and tools for families, educators and community agencies working to ensure that each child gains the experiences needed to discover their potential and build toward a productive and fulfilling future.

Pretend City Children’s Museum is located at 29 Hubble, Irvine, CA 92618. For more information, please visit
