How to watch the Atlanta Peach Drop live on New Year’s Eve

With rain in the Atlanta forecast, some people will opt to stay home and watch the big event

There are only a few hours left in 2018, and Atlanta is preparing to ring in the new year.

An expectation of rain won’t stop the annual Peach Drop, but it might keep some revelers from venturing to Underground Atlanta for the big event. After relocating to Woodruff Park last year, the Peach Drop is back to its normal location. 

No worries. You can watch the Peach Drop live from the comfort of your home.
