Celebrate the New Year – Atlanta style! The largest New Year’s Eve celebration in the Southeast is right here in our great city at the famous Underground Atlanta. Appropriately called “The Peach Drop,” Atlanta takes a cue from New York’s Times Square and “drops” an 800-pound peach at the stroke of midnight to ring in 2014. This year marks the 25th annual event, and it promises to be better than ever! Starting with family-fun activities leading up to the drop, night festivities will include live performances from renowned musical artists. Some of the headliners to hit the stage at Peach Drop have included Morris Day & The Time, Collective Soul, Sister Hazel, Edwin McCain, Lonestar, Miranda Lambert, Julianne Hough, Kansas and Tito Jackson. This year’s headliner is the one and only Beatles tribute band Abby Road Live playing all your favorite Beatles hits.
This 16-hour event begins at 11:00 a.m. with various children’s activities and entertainment including carnival rides, face-painting and balloon artists. Adults are invited to enjoy the many restaurants and bars that Underground Atlanta has to offer open until 4:00 a.m. with New Year’s specials all night. Over 100,000 visitors are expected to ring in the New Year at Peach Drop 2014, and now is your chance to be a part of it! Best of all, this Southern-style spectacle is free and open to the public! Get there early to get a good spot! For more information, please visit PeachDrop.com. As you can imagine, hotels fill up quickly for this incredible extravaganza.
