On this last day of 2018, ring in the New Year with family and friends at one of these fun New Year’s Eve celebrations happening close to home!

Head to the city for Peach Drop at Underground Atlanta, billed as the largest New Year’s Eve celebration in the Southeast! Gates will open at 6 pm, and the fun will be begin at 7 pm with live music from Better than Ezra, 112, and Jagged Edge. At the stroke of midnight, the enormous, dazzling peach will reach its final point of descent, and the sky will illuminate with brilliant fireworks. Due to limited parking, attendees are encouraged to take MARTA to the event. The forecast calls for cool temps and rain, so bring your umbrellas and dress accordingly!

Lanier Islands is hosting a fabulous New Year’s Eve celebration for those staying at the Legacy Lodge. Starting at 6 pm, adults 21 and over can enjoy cocktails, a delicious buffet dinner, and live music from Party Nation in the grand ballroom. Children ages 4 to 12 can attend a Dr. Seuss-themed New Year’s Eve Party that begins at 5:30 pm – they will enjoy a costume contest, kid-friendly buffet dinner, karaoke, games, and a cider toast to bring in the new year!

If the kids (or the adults!) can’t make it till midnight, you’ll love the Early New Year’s Eve Celebration at Stone Mountain Park. Enjoy the park’s ongoing Christmas celebration all afternoon and into the early evening. Right after the Snow Angel Snowfall and Fireworks at 8:30 pm, the New Year’s Eve fun will begin! The whole family will love the costumed characters, lively music, and a dance-a-longs.
