GAINESVILLE - Children at Gainesville's Interactive Neighborhood for Kids (INK) had a New Year's Eve celebration all their own Wednesday.
Seven-year-old Skyler Hopkins had a good time in the INK New Year's Eve Parade at the children's museum, located on Chestnut Street off E.E. Butler Parkway in the Featherbone Center.
"It was a lot of fun. We got to march around and shake our shakers. It's time to celebrate New Year's," she said.
INK group coordinator Jenny Mask said the kids want to celebrate too, they just can't stay up late like Mom and Dad.
"They can't stay up until midnight so we let them have their own throughout the day," Mask said.
Children also enjoyed New Year's arts and crafts, a Jeff McClure magic show and a second New Year's parade in the afternoon.
