For it’s second year, the Chicago Cultural Mile Association was pleased to collaborate with Chi-Town Rising for the inaugural New Year’s Eve Family Countdown Celebration. This year’s activities included “Around The World For New Year’s Eve,” an interactive program designed to teach kids how New Year’s is celebrated around the world. International organizations from all over the city created activity stations highlighting unique customs from nine different countries and children were able to “travel the world” with a special passport to be stamped at each station.
