Anyone ready for a change in weather?

We are pleased to announce the “New Year’s Eve Idaho® Potato Drop®” is in full production. We will be lowering a large scale lit-up potato from one of the tallest buildings in downtown Boise to commemorate the new year and Idaho’s sesquicentennial. FREE Live music on two sound stage will fill the streets, spanning the Grove Plaza through the 8th street promenade. Bouncy houses, magic shows, street performers and local food vendors will make this the best new year’s eve party Boise has ever seen!
A portion of proceeds from this event will be donated to Idaho Schools and the American Red Cross.

Our exclusive partner KTVB will be on hand, as well as Peak, broadcasting live with their variety of quality stations.

Please help us bring this free and charitable community event to life by becoming involved and spreading the word!
