Kids can celebrate their own ball drop today without the exceptionally late bedtime. Providence Children’s Museum is hosting its own ball drop for New Year’s Eve today at the Rocking Noon Year’s Eve celebration with special guest Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza and his son, Omar. Kids and caregivers can join the parade through the museum at noon, followed by the ball drop. There will also be special interactive performances at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. by Rhythm Room who use percussion and vocals to create a captivating show.
Visitors can also visit Providence Children’s Museum’s newest exhibit, Feeling Real or Really Feeling?, designed in collaboration with artists Brooke Erin Goldstein and Steven Lubecki. Children and adults can wander through a multi-sensory world inspired by the experience of synesthesia, the mixing of senses such as hearing a color or feeling a sound. This exhibit will inspire visitors of all ages as they explore the Soundscape Forest, Color City and Texture Mountain, experiencing creativity with all their senses.
