CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - With the new year around the corner, many kids don’t usually last all the way to the actual celebration, but a club has figured out a work-around.

The Boys and Girls Club of Cheyenne is celebrating New Year’s with the kids a little early, all to make sure they can ring in the New Year before they have to go to bed.

There was music, dancing and a balloon drop at noon on Thursday, and the kids, we’re having a blast.

The club adapted their celebration to make the party and balloon drop earlier, so all their kids could still participate in the festivities.

“We’re closed tomorrow and can’t officially celebrate the new year. But this is our own way of celebrating and just coming together as a club for this special day,” said Amanda Fiske, Director of Development, Boy’s and Girls Club of Cheyenne.

They’ve been doing this for several years. The event included a dance party, a balloon drop countdown, a kids award ceremony and root beer floats to top off the occasion.

“We love celebrating at noon and just making it a kid-friendly event, there’s really no better way to end 2021,” said Fiske.

A party to celebrate the ending of another year of challenges, but with new hope for the future.

“It’s just a fun way to close out the year and reflect on the hardships as well as the triumphs of this year and everything we hope to accomplish in the new year. We’re really excited and we have big goals for the future, so just a celebration of all that,” said Fiske.

The kids played with their balloons and drank their root beer floats until the end of the festivities.

They were just excited after two years to be able to celebrate together, a little early, but still, they had fun.

The Boys and Girls Club of Cheyenne takes kids ages 6 through 18 and offers after-school programs and fun events all year round.
