It’s the place to be and be seen on New Year’s Eve.  Fourteen-hundred Hoosiers can’t be wrong.

About eight years ago, some bright people at the Indiana State Museum in down town Indianapolis thought of throwing a New Year’s Eve party for parents and their kids.  There must have been some nay-sayers when this proposal was initially being evaluated, as in no-one-will-go-to-a-museum-on-New-Year’s-Eve.  It’s been a smashing success from the beginning!

Easy to see why.  The space is grand, made for major events, with a three-story atrium and a cross walk on the third floor, where I had the privilege of being set up to draw the party goers.  They were parents with school age kids, mostly.  The party goes from 6:00 to 9:00, with the balloon drop in the atrium at 8:00.  It’s spectacular, festive and, I’m sure, a fond memory when the kids are grown up.  Every city and town should have such a wholesome way of celebrating New Year’s Eve.

Thank you David, Katie and Petra!  I hope to gasp at that balloon drop again in 355 days. Class act! —————————————————————–
