In funky Key West FL, it’s a high heel shoe drop.
In Hermosa Beach, CA, it’s a beach ball drop.
So what would you think they have in the Southern California wine country of Temecula, CA for NYE? If you guessed a grape drop then you are correct.
This is a public event in downtown Temecula at the Civic Center. It goes from 6 p.m.-12:30 a.m. It includes live music, food vendors and ice skating (10 p.m.-12:30 a.m.). There are two drops, one for the East Coast (9 p.m.) and another for the West Coast (midnight) countdown.
This event is just down from the The Gambling Cowboy, which is serving a New Year’s Eve Dinner with music, magic and more. Lorimar Winery is serving up a buffet dinner with live music on the patio and a DJ inside. A Lorimar Ball drop will be followed by a toast of its sparkling wine.
Location: Civic Center, 41000 Main St.
