How is New Year’s Eve celebrated in Latin American countries? We believe the best way to learn is by doing! Stuff the “Old Man” with last year’s regrets and shortcomings, smash a piñata, and pop 12 raisins in your mouth for twelve sweet months to come. 1 – 3 pm. Free with admission.
Event begins at 1:00PM
Presented by: Chesapeake Children's Museum
