Bring in the new year at the Zoo Year's Eve celebration at the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans. This is a fun event for the entire family. It's an event that focuses more on events for children so that they can have fun without staying up until midnight.
Since the event takes place during the day, it's easier to see all of the animals while they are in their exhibits. There is music heard across the zoo from performers who take to the paths as well as those who perform in designated areas across the park. Children can participate in games and win prizes during the day. You can get a party hat and a noisemaker when you get to the zoo. There are soft drinks available for making a toast. Children can take part in the countdown to Noon to help ring in the new year. This is a fun event that keeps children in mind. After the toast, you can spend the rest of the day looking at the animals, riding the carousel or exploring the Insectarium.
While you're in New Orleans, your family can celebrate the new year a few hours early at the Audubon Zoo. There are games, food and soft drinks so that children can have fun while celebrating the holiday. Afterwards, view the animals or explore some of the many shopping centers in the city.
