If standing elbow to elbow with a mass of humanity at Underground isn’t your cup of tea, we have some other options available.
Dropping of the Edelweiss - Helen
Georgia’s Alpine Helen, a sample of Bavaria tucked away in the mountains of White County, hosts a fitting celebration. Revelers will gather at the Festhalle for a family friendly celebration. This 6th annual event features live music, dancing, hors d’oeuvres, and a champagne toast at midnight. Admission is $20/person $35/couple Kids 6-12 are half price & kids under 6 are free
The Possum Drop - Tallapoosa
No live possums are harmed in this event. The good people in Haralson County took that controversy off the table and now they drop a stuffed possum.
This event is outdoors in downtown Tallapoosa. Entertainment includes an Elvis performer, an Eagles tribute band, and country music entertainers. There’s also a kid’s zone and lots of food vendors. Check this link for more details.
New Year's Ghosts & Legends of Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation
For a quieter celebration, head down around Brunswick for ghost stories, history, and literally ringing in the new year with the old plantation bell. As the bell rings annoy sparkling cider. Reservations are required. More information here.
We’ll be celebrating this year with a private party, a small event. There’s plenty of other events to choose from or you can host your own. Regardless of how you celebrate, stay safe and we’ll see you in 2019!
