Happy New Year! Children counted down to the noon balloon drop at the Preschool Noon Year’s Eve party on December 31 at Prairie Lakes Community Center.

About forty children joined their parents to ring in the new year at the first annual Preschool New Year’s Eve Party at Prairie Lakes Community Center on December 31. The celebration began at 10:30 with crafts; coloring; games including musical chairs, freeze dance, and “Simon says;” and free playtime on the matts. “We had so much fun; we hope to do this every year,” said Karyn Roth, Recreation Supervisor. “This event gives families a chance to celebrate with their children, even if they do not stay awake until midnight.”

Families toasted with sparkling apple cider and sported sparkly hats and tiaras. Minutes before noon, everyone assembled on the matts with their noisemakers and counted down to the noon balloon drop.

Registration is open for winter classes, programs, and events. Winter program guides are available online at www.DPParks.org and in all Park District facilities. Classes begin January 6, 2014. For more information, call 847-391-5700.
