This year has been a bummer to say the least and a lot of people are ready to tell 2020 to leave already. But, of course, with the coronavirus pandemic there arent any big live parties going on to celebrate the end of 2020.

But there are online ways to celebrate the end of the year and welcome a hopefully better new year ahead.

Here are five online New Years events being put on by local organizations.

Details: This one is for the little ones as the aquarium streams a program on Zoom that will include craft lessons to teach kids how to create things such as fish-shaped party hats. Theyll also meet some of the animals who live at the aquarium and take part in a Noon Years Eve countdown with the help of a group of puppets. Parents will need to prepare by having craft supplies like paper, crayons, markers, tape, yarn and string ready. The Zoom party costs $5 per family.

When: 11:15 a.m.-noon Dec. 31
