Green Country counting down to 2014, ready to say goodbye 2013 in unique and traditional ways

TULSA - 3...2...1...the countdown to 2014 is almost here. If you are looking for something to do to celebrate on New Year's Eve, here are few unique options such as yoga, a giant olive falling from the sky and fun for the whole family and also some more traditional celebrations too.

If you and your New Year's Eve plans are still flexible, you might want to check out Inner Peace Yoga in South Tulsa.

Inner Peace will be hosting a yoga class for all skill levels beginning at 11 p.m. and ending 30 minutes after midnight. At midnight, there will be a tea toast to say goodbye 2013 and hello 2014.

"It is a really nice opportunity to set an intention for your new year," Inner Peace instructor Keri Edwardes said. "I know people always have new year's resolutions. But setting a true intention, every time you get on your mat people will set an intention for their practice. So this is an opportunity to set an intention for the whole year."

In Bartlesville a more adult crowd will be sipping martinis as the Price Tower Arts Center hosts the 10th annual Olive Drop Party. At midnight an oversized olive will once again be dropped from the top of the tower in downtown Barlesville into a giant martini glass.

Watching the olive drop is free - but tickets are being sold for a dinner and also dance party. For more information call 918-336-4949 ext. 107.

If you have kids and staying up until midnight is not an option, the Tulsa Children's Museum might be right for your family - with its early celebration. Staff say they're trying to help families celebrate, that might not otherwise have a lot of options.

"There is not a lot going on, we are seeing more and more as the years progress," museum educator Dani Bormann said. "But we are one of the few events that I've heard about focusing on the entire family and doing it at a time when the children will be able to participate."  

TCM's Discovery Lab is hosting Noon Year's Eve from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Dec. 31. Tickets are $6 per person for museum members and $10 for non-members. According to staff, a limited amount of tickets remain. Tickets can be purchased at

The Noon Year's Eve party will have New Year's themed activities and entertainment for the whole family and 100's of balloons will be dropped from the ceiling at noon.
