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.
Super 8 provided a HUGE fireworks display seen here: http://on.ktvb.com/1Oy4J1F. 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”.

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 attended to our guests. The warm toasty atmosphere was beautifully designed and Grind Modern Burger Made some great food and cocktails.
A special thanks goes to this year’s sponsors
