Thursday, Dec. 29th - Time TBD - Circus Fit with Ringling clowns - "The spectacular circus performers at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® are also accomplished athletes who need to be in top physical condition, making them ideal "real life" role models who can encourage young people to be active and fit. Through the CircusFit Program, the Ringling Bros. acrobats, clowns, high wire and trapeze artists, and many of our other performer-athletes help show youth an awe-inspiring and action-packed approach to health and fitness - motivating them to get up and move with games and activities that are more play than work."
Saturday, Dec. 31st - Noon Years Eve - The Museum will ring in the "New Years" with a countdown at noon, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 for kids and their families.
