For the 8th year in a row, New Roc City hosted a festive party for kids to celebrate the new year. ‘Ring in the New Year at Noon’ for kids ages 2 – 10 has become an annual tradition at New Roc City and is held in the atrium. The event, held this past December 31st, attracted more than 1200 kids and their parents. New Roc City is located at 33 Le Count Place in downtown New Rochelle.
The event again supported the Westchester Children’s Museum through a $10 donation per family of four. This year’s event generated a donation of $3,500 and combined with the past two years, the total donation to the museum is $8,000.
The Children’s Museum is an interactive learning space providing children, families and school groups the opportunity to nurture curiosity and ignite imagination through creative hands-on exploration. The museum is located at 100 Playland Parkway in Rye.
