Greater Prescott is gearing up for its 13th New Year’s Eve Whiskey Row Boot Drop, which will draw thousands of locals and visitors to Courthouse Plaza to celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of another in what’s billed as the largest Dec. 31 event in Northern Arizona.
The party starts at around 7:30 p.m. with enough live music, food and fun to get you at least until the 4th of July!
Top-40 rock cover band Friendly Jesture has a following across Arizona and has been announced as the night’s headliner, with an extensive song list honoring superstars from the ‘70s through today. They will be joined by other music and dance groups to keep the crowd jumping before, during and after the night’s fireworks displays.
The pyrotechnics will explode at 10 p.m. for those who prefer to celebrate on Times Square time and at midnight for others who don’t mind staying out a little later.
Food trucks and downtown restaurants will have food on hand, and the friendliness of Everybody’s Hometown will charge the air. For more information about this year’s event visit www.bootdrop.com, call 800.975.0013 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Whiskey Row Boot Drop is the last of the five Arizona’s Christmas City signature events, which include the Courthouse Lighting. Christmas Parade, Acker Night and the Christmas Village and Dec. 15 to Dec.17, the Christmas Village and Christkindl Market. The Boot Drop is supported by title sponsors Desert Financial Credit Union and Experience Prescott and others.
