The New Year’s Eve celebrations started a little early, in bangor today…
As about a hundred kids gathered at the bangor mall for a ":Noon": Year’s Eve party….
Our own Cori Skall was there for all the fun…..
":Do you know what today is No. It’s New Year’s Eve! Oh yeah! Know what happens on New Year’s Eve Nope! They drop the big ball! Oh Yeah!":
":Why’s New Year’s Eve so special What does it mean":
":it’s gonna be 2009—and its gonna be the first day of January.":
Radio station 105-seven, solution f-m, teamed up with the bangor mall, and the texas road house, to throw a special celebration for 3 through 8 years olds in the area….
":today, we’re doing the *noon Year’s Eve* party for all the little kids who can’t stay up till midnight to watch the ball drop.":
":we thought by having something at noon, kids could make party hats, have a balloon drop, make a lot of noise, win some prizes and have some fun!":
":I made a triceratops mask and I got a balloon and I got my face painted like a balloon.":
":there’s actually prizes in each of the balloons, so the idea is for kids to kind of grab a balloon, and pop it and get whatever prizes are in there.":
This is the fourth year the *noon* year’s eve celebration has taken place at the mall….
And this year, thanks to a donation of bubble wrap from the broadway UPS store, the kids got to add a little pop to the celebration!
":the kids can jump on it and make fake fireworks.":
":I think our New Year’s message it just to remember to care for one another….Obviously a lot of things are gloomy right now, and anything we can do as a radio station to give parents something fun for their kids, that’s free, we’re trying to do.":
":Happy New Years!":
