Families Ring in the New Year Early at Stone Mountain Park
9 p.m. countdown celebrated with fireworks and snowfall
Stone Mountain Park will ring in the New Year early, providing an opportunity for parents and children to enjoy all the excitement of a midnight countdown a few hours early on Dec. 31. Stone Mountain Christmas attractions will take place as usual beginning at 2 p.m., including a presentation of the Snow Angel Snowfall and Fireworks Finale at 8:30 p.m.
Immediately following, early New Year’s Eve activities will begin with costumed characters, music and dance-alongs. At 8:59 p.m. the early countdown will begin and when the clock strikes 9 p.m., snow and fireworks will usher in the New Year.
“This event has become extremely popular among park visitors since its introduction two years ago,” said Michael Dombrowski, Stone Mountain Park general manager.
“In particular, we’ve found parents with toddlers appreciate being able to celebrate together in a family-friendly environment. They can visit with Christmas characters, experience a real snowfall and enjoy a great fireworks show—all while avoiding midnight traffic and the challenges that come with getting young children back on their regular sleep schedule.”
