Boise Prepares for 2015 New Year's Eve Idaho Potato Drop

Posted By on Wed, Dec 31, 2014 at 11:25 AM

What's big, brown and will fall from the sky this evening?

Downtown Boise is upended over the midnight descent of a Subaru-sized potato in the Grove: Barricades and stages are being installed, cranes are in place, and traffic is being blocked off in the downtown core. It's all in preparation for a massive New Year's Eve festival that begins at 8 p.m. and runs through, well, the wee hours of 2015, with music on three stages, throngs of people and, of course, the dropping of a massive tuber for which Idaho is rightly famous.

For a complete list of events, check this week's edition of Boise Weekly, on stands now.

Here are a few images of work crews setting up downtown for the festivities:
