Usher in 2024 Dublin-style! Way back in the day, it was a tradition to gather in front of Lauren’s County’s oldest bank, Farmers and Merchants Bank, on New Year’s Eve to watch the clock turn to midnight. Originally located in Downtown Dublin on Jackson Street, Farmers and Merchants Bank is no more, but the Downtown Dublin Development Authority, Main Street Dublin, and City of Dublin brought the tradition back with New Year’s Eve Shamrock Drop at the Fred Roberts!
The brightly lit shamrock descends from the top of the Fred Roberts building to count down the clock and ring in the new year with a bubbly toast. But the party starts long before midnight! The fun begins a free movie at Theatre Dublin followed by music in Bicentennial Plaza. A portion of Bellevue Avenue (U.S. Highway 80) is closed off between Church Street and Monroe Street, so that guests can enjoy the event block party style. Lawn chairs and coolers are welcome. The official celebration takes place from 5 PM until midnight.
