Well, y’all, 2023 is almost over and 2024 is almost here! It’s time to celebrate a year of great memories and get ready for a year of making brand new ones!
Everyone loves to watch the year end and the new one start with a good BANG, so this year, we’re recommending five fireworks shows to get you feeling festive for the New Year!
1. The Atlanta Peach Drop
Address: 50 Upper Alabama St, Atlanta, GA 30303
UPDATE: The Peach Drop has been canceled for this year, but there’s good news! According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
“Two hours after the news came out Friday, the owners of Underground Atlanta, Lalani Ventures came out with a press release stating that there will be a free fireworks show at midnight along with parties at Pagalle Theater and The Masquerade, among others.”
So you can still head to Underground for all your NYE festivities! There will just be no Peach Drop!
2. New Year’s Eve Bash presented by Xfinity
Address: The Plaza at Battery Atlanta, 755 Battery Avenue Southeast, Atlanta,GA 30339
Say HELLO to 2023 at the seventh annual New Year’s Eve Bash at The Battery Atlanta!
The night begins with music from Four-time GRAMMY Nominee Brady Rymer on the Georgia Power Pavilion Stage at 6 PM.
Directly after the performance, kids can join host Mark Owens for a countdown to an inflatable balloon drop at 8 PM!
Then at 9 PM, emcee Mark Owens will welcome 12 South Band, and finally, all the festivities will culminate with an aerial firework and confetti display over Truist Park at midnight.
3. 17th Street Bridge
Address: 1380 Atlantic Dr NW
If you’re just looking to enjoy all of the fireworks in the sky on New Year’s Eve, then a great spot to view the skylines of Midtown and Buckhead is the 17th street bridge. You can see all the fireworks in the sky from this vantage point, so you won’t miss out on anything!
4. Jackson Street Bridge
Address: 433 Freedom Park Trail
Another great spot to watch the sky for fireworks all night is the Jackson Street Bridge in East Atlanta. This Walking Dead shooting location is a famous and recognizable ATL location, so all of your photos of the sky will turn out truly iconic!
5. Kid’s Early NYE Celebration at Stone Mountain Park
Address: 1000 Robert E. Lee Blvd., Stone Mountain, GA 30083
If you want to see fireworks but you don’t want to wait until midnight… you’re in luck!
According to their website, “During Stone Mountain Christmas on Dec. 31, Stone Mountain Park will operate the Christmas event as usual and then we’ll ring in the early New Year with a magical snowfall and early 2023 countdown. When the clock strikes 9 p.m., enjoy fireworks to usher in the New Year early!”
New Year at 9pm sounds great for getting the kiddos in bed on time!
3, 2, 1… HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!
See ya in 2024!
