Breakfast added to New Year’s Eve lineup

-A A +A

The city of Tell City is kicking off its first-ever New Year’s Eve celebration with a myriad of activities followed by the dropping of a large apple. A new event, a post-midnight pancake breakfast, was added to the schedule this week. 

In honor of the community’s Swiss heritage, an 8-foot diameter LED apple will be lowered on its 40-foot pole at midnight in City Hall Park. Fireworks will follow the apple drop along with the traditional singing of “Auld Lang Syne.”

To gear up for the midnight apple drop, the Perry County Quality of Life Committee has scheduled numerous activities in both City Hall Park and at Tell City Junior-Senior High School. A Family Fun Night will be hosted by Tell City Junior-Senior High School from 8 to 10:30 p.m. Youth organizations will coordinate activities, including swimming, games, dancing, movies, basketball and food. Participants of all ages are encouraged to attend.

Activities will begin in and around City Hall Park at 9 p.m. These activities will include hay rides, live music, card playing at St. Paul’s Church, a bubble-wrap stomp for the young and old to enjoy, and a 1.7-mile fun run-walk.

Hot drinks and food will available for purchase that night. The pancake breakfast in the parish hall will begin shortly after midnight.
