In its 8th year, the annual New Year’s Eve Ruby Drop is scheduled to kick off December 31 at 9 p.m. with music, festivities, and fun to ring in the New Year.
The annual event is hosted by Motor Company Grill and Crabtree General Store, but businesses along Main Street have joined in on the celebration, offering special deals and discounts and staying open late to better serve the crowds.
Motor Co. will be serving dinner inside and will have heaters along the patio, although the weather is expected to be as unseasonably warm for New Years as it was for Christmas. There will also be corn hole (weather permitting) on the patio of Motor Company Grill.
Before the 7’ by 7’ — 1,300 LED light-filled Ruby is lowered from high above Main Street, the FREE event will also have a new addition this year, with free carriage rides around Main Street.
Music will be playing along Main Street and the Ruby will drop in Town Square as the crowd countdowns the end of 2021 and welcome 2022!
