3rd Annual First Night at SCAE

Calendar Dec 31, 2017 at 6 pm

Celebrate New Year's Eve family-style with SCAE! We had a blast last year, and plans are bigger and better for this year!  We had cookie decorating, family friendly movies, a hip hop DJ with music, T-shirt painting, food, more food, an obstacle course, and a 9 p.m. countdown and balloon drop.  What's in store this year??

For families with kids-this is the BEST New Year's Eve deal in town!  The best part, we tire the kiddos out, so mom & dad can arrange for a babysitter and hit the town!
