“Looking to have some extraordinary New Year’s Eve plans? How about heading to Idaho’s capital and watching a giant potato drop from the sky? You can forget about Times Square… The Idaho Potato Drop events start at 6 p.m. but are sure to carry on through to the following day, ending with a spectacular glow-tato falling from the sky at the stroke of midnight.”

“Idaho: there’s a unique New Year’s tradition

The iconic Times Square New Year’s ball drop is one of the most famous traditions when it comes to ringing in the New Year. However, Boise residents have found a more unique (and more state-appropriate) way to welcome 1 January. Since 2013, thousands of spec-taters have gathered at the Idaho State Capitol every year to watch the Idaho Potato Drop – a giant, illuminated GlowTato is lowered from above as the clock strikes midnight. We’d expect nothing less from Idaho.” MSN Digital News click here

For folks living outside the region, Idaho is probably most famous for the stem tubers we love to turn into French fries. Yes, potatoes are the number one thing Idaho is known for. But there’s so much more culturally significant to the state than just these veggies.
Look who made number #2 on the list! We love you too Idaho!!!!!!
