The Frankfort Park District’s New Year’s Countdown, which culminated at noon on New Year’s Eve with a balloon drop, gave Frankfort’s youngest residents a chance to share in the end-of-year celebrations. 

The young crowd was happy to spend the morning of Dec. 31 participating in New Year’s-themed activities at the Founders Community Center and jumping and laughing on a giant inflatable.
