4th Annual Idaho® Potato Drop

Huge firework show and live music at the Idaho State Capitol for New Year’s Eve!

Last New Year’s Eve in Downtown Boise, the Idaho New Year’s Commission & The Idaho Potato Commission hosted the third annual Idaho Potato Drop for thousands of spec-taters in front of the Idaho State Capitol.

Spuddy Buddy was once again on the scene, bringing smiles and high-fives with the Famous Idaho Potato Tour Truck. Super 8 provided a HUGE fireworks display seen here: A variety of eclectic vendors were on site including human bubble Soccer, live glass blowing, balloon twister, official Idaho Potato Drop gear, Proof sunglasses, hot yummy food, coffee and the list goes on! The famous Idaho Potato Truck was on the scene accompanied by Spuddy Buddy which made for awesome selfies.

A full line up of talented musicians graced the main stage (sponsored by Super 8) and Blue lotus rang in the new year with “Auld Lange Syne”. FREE Uber rides for all were available through 2/29/2016 for all new UBER account users. The VIP experience was a big hit with our guests who danced to DJ Justin Case while watching the fireworks through the crystal clear roof. Kipp Sherry entertained with magic while Mrs. Idaho, USA and our VIP Hostesses rang in the new year with our fellow partygoers. The warm toasty atmosphere was beautifully designed with some great food and cocktails.

A special thanks goes to this year’s sponsors
