Pike County Events For New Year's Eve


By Sarah Cantey

Whether you want to ring in the New Year sipping wine on the square, watching a disco peanut drop or enjoy an evening of worship- Here's a run through of just a few New Year's Events across Pike County. 

Jamie Taylor, wife owns Sips on The Square said, "Downtown in Troy is growing so quickly and it's so neat the different things we are doing down here."
And Sips on the Square is adding a new way to round out the year. The Black and White affair is 30 dollars a person, featuring a new wine and food pairing every hour starting at 9- leading up to a balloon drop and champagne toast at midnight. 
Taylor said, "It's going to be nice to look out on the square at midnight and see something going on see a crowd of people here." 
If a glass of wine doesn't get you in the spirit, Willie C. Scott/ Bishop Outreach Endtime Deliverance Church said, "What we do here at the church is we wait for the spirit to drop haha." 
Right off of Highway 231, the Outreach Endtime Deliverance Church opens it's doors to the public for a non denominational night worship starting at 10. 
Scott said "Everybody's welcome and normally we get people that leave other churches and sometimes they will stop by because we do have the fellowship breakfast afterwards." 
Heading a few miles south, the disco ball peanut will drop twice in Brundidge. Studio 116 will hold a disco themed dance inside the gallery and outside the peanut will drop at 8:45 for the kids and midnight for adults. 
Brundidge Mayor Jimmy Ramage said, "We look forward to having something that the children can even enjoy and that makes it special because it can be a family event and not just an adult event."
The second annual event, centered around the peanut which used to be the backbone of the local economy, is a  welcomed addition to a small town community. Until last year there hasn't been something for everyone to enjoy. 
Chris Rich, Co-Director Studio 116 said, "It's a wonderful time to get together enjoy, not be blasted out, not have all of these things going on that you cant really focus on what the fun is and that is experiencing it together." 
The event at Studio 116 for the kids starts at 8 p.m. and adults at 9 p.m. Tickets are 5 dollars per kid and 8 per adult. All proceeds from the kids event will go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The peanut drop is out on Main Street and is free.
