Ring in the New Year at Our Gala and Anchor Drop

Midnight Anchor Drop

Join us for this complimentary display of lights and music. Each year at midnight we count down to the new year by lowering a brilliantly adorned wooden anchor to countdown to the new year. 

The anchor drop includes light refreshments by the firepits on our porch and we also run a Family Anchor drop early in the evening!
