Tết Việt Nam
Originally uploaded by DulichVietnam360°
As the clock strikes noon in Shreveport-Bossier City, says Eric Gipson, Vietnam will be celebrating Tet Nguyen Dan (the first morning of the first day of the new period). Sci-Port visitors can celebrate the traditions of Tet and then count down to “midnight” with a balloon drop from Sci-Port’s second floor balcony.

Sci-Port: Louisiana’s Science Center will hold that New Years at Noon celebration from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. New Years Eve, Thursday, December 31.

Activities, sponsored by Mrs. Bobbie Cates Hicks, are included with Sci-Port admission and free to Sci-Port members.

Sci-Port: Louisiana's Science Center is a 92,000 square-foot science and entertainment center featuring 290 hands-on exhibits, a Space Center and Space Dome Planetarium, IMAX Dome Theatre, demonstration theater, daily changing programs, gift shop and cafe. Sci-Port is located at 820 Clyde Fant Parkway on the downtown Shreveport Riverfront. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday.
