Maxtivity, the Philomath-based arts and crafts creative space, plans to host a New Year’s Eve ball drop and chain reaction art event at noon on New Year’s Eve at the Philomath Museum, Executive Director Louise-Annette Burgess announced.

Burgess said beyond the countdown and chain reaction art, there will also be a piñata filled with fun things including art projects — best for ages 3 to 12.

Tickets will be $5 for ages 13 and above and free for 12 and under. The countdown and chain reaction art will be repeated at midnight, Burgess said.

Maxtivity provides inclusive access to creative opportunities through its arts and crafts community space. The organization provides educational outreach through its artist-in-residence program and community projects. Maxtivity also focuses on underserved schools and community centers so all youth and adults can engage in creative discoveries in Benton County and outlying communities.
