For many years, Laurel locals have been devoted to restoring our city and bringing life back into the once busy streets. We get so excited when new events take place in Laurel because it's just one other way our community it growing! The Laurel Main Street team has worked tirelessly to organize and host Laurel's latest event Downtown Countdown. Mark your calendars for New Years Eve because downtown Laurel is going to be the place to be!
The event begins at 6pm with several activities that are kid friendly including a balloon drop at 8pm. The official opening of the event will begin at 8:30 with live music from Red & the Revelers, and Emerald Empire Band. Take in the live music with dinner from one of the many food trucks. Beer and champagne will also be served! The VIP Roaring into the 20's section also opens at 8:30. The VIP section is a ticketed event and tickets can be purchased here.
At midnight, we'll ring in the New Year with a special entertainment, a firework display, and the highly anticipated pinecone drop. LMS worked with Hedrick Signs to create an 8ft pinecone that will be displayed on top on of the Welcome Center, which is located on the corner of Central Avenue and Magnolia Avenue. The pinecone pays homage to our historic loblolly pines that define much of our rich history as a sawmill town. Check out this update from the #pineconeprocess
