A Hit Last New Year’s Eve, Piedmont’s ‘Squirrel Drop’ to be Repeated

Piedmont volunteers and employees are planning a New Year’s Eve celebration. The focus will be on the city’s Squirrel Drop countdown to the new year featuring Sparky the Squirrel. Terry Batey, Sparky’s creator, created a much taller, yet-to-be-named second squirrel so Saturday night’s attendees can pose with it in photos.

Other cities drop a crystal ball, a beach ball, a potato, a pickle , A moon Pie or a peach on New Year’s Eve, but only Piedmont drops Sparky the Squirrel to bring in the New Year!
