Brand New Tradition Drops in Nashville This New Year’s Eve

A new tradition drops this Sunday, December 31 at the Nashville Junction: the First Annual New Year’s Eve Egg Drop. Braswell Family Farms has partnered with the Nashville Junction to host the event and with Edwards, Inc. to create a steel egg that will be slowly lowered from a crane to countdown to the New Year.

The event will begin at 4 p.m. and conclude with the Egg Drop at 7 p.m., accompanied by fireworks.

President of Braswell Family Farms, Trey Braswell said “The goal is to have a family-focused event in our community so that people would have something fun, exciting, safe, and wholesome to go to.”

The event is several years in the making. It began a few years ago when a friend suggested the idea to Braswell. After some years of thinking through the logistics, the idea developed and everything fell into place to start it this year.

Not only will the event feature the Egg Drop to celebrate the New Year, but Meredith Davis Johnson will play starting around 4 p.m. and Real Rowdy will headline the event following her set. 

Several food trucks will also be on-site to enjoy, providing various kinds of food along with a hot beverage truck for coffee and hot chocolate.

Bubbles will offer face painting to kids, and there will be various games for kids to enjoy.

Braswell noted that there isn’t anything quite like this in the community, and he hopes this year’s Egg Drop will be the first of many. “I hope my grandkids are going to it when they’re old enough,” he said.

Michael Hurt of The Nashville Junction also expressed excitement about the event and what it means for the Twin Counties, saying it will be “an amazing event, and one that we’re looking forward to growing into an annual family tradition for the future of our community.”

The event should be a great time for citizens, but it is also designed to benefit a good cause. Attendees can bring in canned goods or cash donations to receive raffle tickets to win prizes. The canned goods and monetary donations will go to Touch of the Father’s Love Food Bank.

Be sure to bring a chair or a blanket so that you can enjoy the event comfortably.

Here are some other great events to consider to ring in the New Year:
