Idaho Potato Drop Festival in Boise Rings in 2018

Boise Statehouse during the Idaho Potato Drop Festival

The Potato Dropping at the Statehouse

New Year’s Eve, 2017 at The Idaho Potato Drop event. A lot of the snow had melted by the 31st, and the sun was shining into a beautiful blue Boise sky. The Idaho Potato Drop Festival is an end-of-the-year family friendly event that rings in the new year with a day of live music, inner-tube rides down ice ramps, wrestling matches, local food and drinks, a huge family tent warmed up with entertainment for the kids, and for the grand-finale, a potato the size of a bus is lowered by crane into the cheers of the crowd, and into our hopes and prayers for the new year.

The Boise Beat wishes everyone a happy, healthy and fun 2018!
