Organizers of the largest New Year's Eve bash in the southeast are preparing for a special celebration Tuesday on the plaza above Underground Atlanta as they celebrate 25 years since the first Peach Drop.
The 16-hour event will include a full day of family fun and an evening of live entertainment. Beginning at 11 a.m., Underground Atlanta will be filled with carnival-style rides, live music, face painting, street performers and festival food.
As 2014 nears, the main stage will light up with live performances, and the 800-pound Peach will begin its decent just before the clock strikes midnight.
This year's event will see a new twist on this celebrated ritual, as a giant M&M'S® Peanut will be featured alongside the peach and reveal a colorful surprise to spectators shortly after the drop is made.
