Let the countdown to 2018 begin! Bring the entire family to the Toledo Zoo on New Year’s Eve to ring in the New Year a little early… at noon!

Let’s be honest; midnight is just too late for the younger party-hat wearers. To provide the same fun festivities during day-light hours for our pint-sized guests, the Zoo will celebrate Noon Year’s Eve, sponsored by Meijer. This family-friendly event, focusing on making 2018 a greener year, will take place Sunday, December 31 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Together with family and friends, the Zoo will celebrate the stroke of noon with the rising of our recycling ball, a cascade of biodegradable confetti, apple juice toast and a chorus of ‘Auld Lang Syne.’ Throughout the celebration, guests can make their conservation reZOOlutions, enjoy craft time, an ice carving demonstration, animal feeds / enrichment, along with the Ice Slide and Bumper Cars on Ice in the Winter Village sponsored by Kroger. This is the perfect way for the whole family to send out 2017 with a bang!

Noon Year’s Eve, sponsored by Meijer, is free with Zoo admission. The Zoo admission gates will be open on New Year’s Eve from 10 a.m.—9 p.m. with Lights Before Christmas presented by KeyBank beginning at 3 p.m. and grounds closing at 10 p.m.
