This ain't exactly Ibiza, so you'd figure someone in Colorado Springs would be thinking about New Year's Eve from a child's perspective. Turns out there are a few someones, with the Pikes Peak Children's Museum crew. Their annual Noon Year's Eve party runs from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and offers ball and balloon drops, among other wholesome attractions. Since there's no actual Children's Museum yet (see here), the event will unfold at the Olympic Training Center (1750 E. Boulder St.), where families of up to five can get in for $13 in advance (at pikespeakchildrensmuseum.org) or $15 at the door. Each additional partygoer will cost you $2, or $3 at the door. — Kirk Woundy
