Oak Park, Illinois - December 7, 2006 - Wonder Works, a Children's Museum in Oak Park, will host a children's sized New Year's Eve party at the museum on Sunday, December 31 from noon to 5pm. Kids and families are invited to put on hats and ring in the New Year around the world at Wonder Works with games, noise makers, songs and "bubbly" juice drinks and snacks. The museum will not only celebrate our own New Year, but celebrate the New Year of countries around the world. Join in on the fun of celebrating the New Year while learning about different regions of the world.
