Who Wants to Watch a Possum Drop?

By
Real Estate Agent with Tallapoosa, Bremen, Waco, Buchanan, Temple, Carrollton Licensed in GA & AL

Who wants to watch a possum drop?  Many will ask, and have asked this question through the years...but evidently people from all over the land enjoy the New Year's fesivities in Tallapoosa, GA each New Year's Eve.

Each New Year's Eve at the stroke of midnight, Spencer the possum (taxidermy patient) is dropped from the top of the highest building on Head Ave., while the crowd goes wild.

Don't miss it.  Be there or be square. It's awesome to watch the possum...drop.

Karen- Wow, and I thought I was a rebel when I was in Key West and watched the conch shell drop! On a bright note, Snooki (of Jersey Shore fame) will NOT be dropping in the ball in Times Square as previously reported so we have that going for us!

Thanks Wendy.  I knew my hometown of Tallapoosa was the crazy capital of the world.  If you're ever down this way let me know.  I'd love to show you around.  Have a great New Year's Eve.  We will miss you.

Christie - You lucked out.  Have a good time New Year's Eve.  Any time you want to watch a possum drop let me know, I may can arrange a special showing.

Hey Karen - I have just added "MUST visit Tallapoosa Georgia at least once in my lifetime" to my Bucket List!  And, I'm counting on you to show me the town!  Maybe you can arrange with CNN that they do a story on Spencer?  All the very best in 2011 - Cheers - Wendy

No better place than Tallapoosa for a bucket list.  I would love to show you around.  CNN would love or should love the event.  Maybe next year...I'll have to get some good footage.

Have a great New Year's Eve, cheers back at you.
