Atlanta New Years Eve 2015

Fireworks, Events, Webcams, Parties, Hotels, Restaurants

Atlanta, Georgia, USA, 31 December 2014, Midnight

Atlanta skyline

Atlanta is the capital of Georgia state, but when it comes to New Years Eve they like to see themselves as being the capital of the whole deep south of the United States, with an enormous street party and fireworks display bringing locals out in large numbers as well as crowds of visitors from smaller towns in the area and the surrounding countryside regions.

The Peach Drop party provides a focal point for the Atlanta NYE celebrations, putting a peculiarly Atlantan twist on the more traditional ball drop you see in Times Square. The Peach Drop has bveen taking place each year since 1989 and the peach itself is made out of fibreglass and foam and weights in at over 800 pounds. It takes 58 seconds for the giant peach (nod to Roald Dahl here I think...) to descend the light-clustered 136 foot tower.

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings

 

Atlanta’s Peach Drop event serves as the central point for the more than 100,000 revelers who join in the family-friendly festival. The event, sponsored this years by M&M'S® Peanut, includes carnival rides, vendors, live music, and its namesake Peach Drop (a play on the Times Square iconic ball drop), all in the name of the countdown to the new year. The event is held at downtown’s Underground Atlanta and the surrounding Kenny's Alley area. lasting right up until 4am on new year's day morning.

We'll provide the full lineup for the Peach Drop as soon as we have it - they left it a little late last year so hopefully the announcement will be a bit more timely this year!

To hunt out the best fireworks displays vantage points making yourself familiar with the Atlanta cityscape is a big advantage. Atlanta’s tallest skyscraper, the Bank of America Plaza, is the 52nd-tallest building in the world and is actually the 9th tallest building in the United States (you can pick it out easily enough in the picture above)

For spending some time in and around the city over the holiday period, recommended places to visit include the High Museum of Art, the Woodruff Arts Center, The Museum of Design Atlanta, commonly abbreviated to MODA and the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center.

For an event of a slightly more cultural feel, the ASO (Atlanta Symphony Orchestra) will be performing the music and lyrics of Gershwin at the Symphony Hall. This is always a very popular event with Atlantans on new year's eve so is likely to sell out fast - tickets details to follow.

The weather at the end of December is somewhat unpredictable, with anything from clear skies and warm sunshine to snow storms possible, but if it remains clement then there are some outdoor attractions worthy of the name - the Atlanta Botanical Garden features the Kendeda Canopy Walk, and the Atlanta Zoo remains enduringly popular, not least for the resident giant pandas.
