New Year's Eve is coming and kids can ring in the new year at the St. Peters Rec-Plex.
Children between the ages of 8- and 13-years-old can swim, dive, ice skate, play basketball and more at the Rec-Plex for the annual New Year's Even Lock-in. The event begins at 7 p.m. and ends at 7 a.m. on New Year's Day.
Games at the event will include broomball on the ice, basketball shooting contests and more. The pool has a current channel, waterslide and diving boards.
The lock-in will be fully staffed, including lifeguards at the pool.
At midnight everyone will ring in the New Year with a balloon drop. Kids that want to sleep can bring sleeping bags and pillows.
Registration in advance is required. The lock-in costs $50 for St. Peters residents and Rec-Plex annual pass-holders. The cost is $60 for the general public.
The New Year’s Eve Lock-in is free to Rec-Plex Gold Plus members.
Food and drink will be available to purchase from the The Finish Line café during the event.
To register, call 636-939-2FUN, ext. 1400, or come to the Rec-Plex, 5200 Mexico Rd., before Dec. 31.
On Dec. 31, late registrations will be accepted until 1 p.m., if space is available, and will be subject to a late charge of $15 per child. No registrations will be taken at the door. Kids must be picked up from the Rec-Plex by 7 a.m. on Jan. 1 to avoid a late pickup fee.
Parental authorization forms also must be completed and submitted to the Rec-Plex to enter kids into the New Year’s Eve Lock-in.
