As New Year’s Eve approaches, many people would love to celebrate the coming of a new year and new possibilities. Covid makes some people nervous about large gatherings with people they may not know, so let’s see what the possibilities are for celebrating the new year in Cobb County.
Probably the safest way to celebrate is in your backyard with people who you know are up to date on vaccinations. Bring a television outside to watch New Year’s celebrations, set up snacks, and watch the peach drop on television.
The Battery is offering a free event to celebrate the new year. Mark Owens will emcee. There is an early inning celebration for families and anyone who does not want to stay up late.

Parking in the red, green, yellow, purple, silver, Delta decks, surface lots, and lot 29 is free.
