New Year’s at Noon
About 150 families — with an estimated 75 children — celebrated New Year’s a little early at Town of Farragut’s 2nd Annual New Year’s at Noon event in Farragut Community Center Saturday afternoon, Dec. 31.
The celebration included popcorn with seasonings and other add-ons; craft tables, where attendees could design their own party hats; games, such as corn hole; a photo booth; a toast with ginger ale; and a balloon drop.
“We just wanted to do something for New Year’s with her,” Matthew Oswalt said of his 5-year-old daughter, Ember.
“We came out last year and really liked it,” Shelby Smith of Hardin Valley said. “We decided to do it again.
“It’s amazing,” said Merritt Piper, Town Recreation and Event manager. “The balloons are obviously the best part.”
She noted there were roughly 1,000 balloons suspended from the gymnasium ceiling that dropped as the clock wound to noon.
