Usher in the New Year 2013 in the state of Georgia

The state of Georgia, located in the southeastern United States, was named after King George II of Great Britain. Georgia is not only a popular destination to many tourists due to its spas, charming galleries filled with local treasures, golf courses, historical sites and miles of pristine untouched beaches but also a transportation hub which is centered around the capital and most populous city, Atlanta. The state of Georgia is planning some of the most peculiar drops on New Year’s Eve 2013.

Forget Times Square Ball Drop! Across Georgia some peculiar drops are planned on New Year’s Eve 2013. In Atlanta, the capital city of the peach state has a “Peach Drop”. Cornelia hosts a “Little Red Apple Drop” and Dance in honor of the region's apple growers. In Duluth, a disco ball called the “Soaring Spirit Ball” is raised. In Gainesville “Chuck the Chicken” Drop started in 2009. In Macon the Cherry Blossom Capital of the World rings in the New Year with the “Cherry Blossom Ball Drop”.  In Tallapoosa an opossum drops on odd years. In Winder a “Jug Drop” takes place at the Barrow County Museum. So if you are looking for an alternative to the ball drop in Times Square, Georgia is the place to be on New Year’s Eve 2013.
