Zoo Year’s Eve – Audubon Zoo
Leave your party hat and noisemaker at home because we have got you covered. The Audubon Zoo celebrates New Year’s at a slightly different time on December 31, 2019 – 10:30am – 12:30pm – which is of course the best time for kids to celebrate when the clock strikes twelve. There will be music just for kids, games and definitely a lot of prizes. You actually can bring outside food and beverages to this event along with portable chairs and blankets, but please leave the tents at home. Rain or shine this event will happen, so grab your special toasting drink and count down to Noon to ring in the New Year New Orleans Kid’s style at Audubon Zoo. Click HERE for more details.
