Peachland New Year Celebration
Posted in the Monroe Forum
#1 Jan 9, 2013
There were over 300 people at this year's 33rd annual Peach Drop on New Years. It is getting to be one of the biggest parties in Anson County. From 9 o'clock up until quarter to midnight there was some good down home country music, a little rock and roll and awesome bluegrass. The street dance was when the country bands played. The big band this year was Diane Sawyer and the Nashville Blues Band. They were AWESOME. Dillon Holmes who can imitate Garth Brooks sang several of his hits and got the crowd fired up singing along when he did "Friends in Low Places".
At a quarter of midnight all the music stopped and the announcer came on and talked about what all was good in 2012. then it got to be 5 minutes until the peach drop. All the lights were on and people were all looking up, 4 minutes, 3 minutes, 2 minutes and then ONE MINUTE! cars started blinking their lights and blowing their horns. Then 10-9-8-7-6 A big Diesel truck horn started tooting so we couldn't hear the last numbers. Then the Peach started down and it hit the ground and fireworks went off.
People were yelling HAPPY NEW YEAR and running around hugging each other. Some fat lady grabbed me and struck her tongue in my mouth, then jumped on the fellow beside me and done him the same way. I looked for my wife and she was kissing some old fellow so I figured it was alright. I grabbed a young good looking girl and swabbed her tonsils good and she slapped me hard. I grabbed my wife and got out of there but I'll be back next year for the 34th annual Peach Drop
