For those of you who don’t have plans yet for New Year’s Eve, or for those of you who want advice on avoiding crowds that night, here’s an update on what has become Idaho’s biggest New Year’s Party.

It’s probably safe now to call the Idaho Potato Drop an annual event. This is the third year a car-sized foam potato will be lowered from a crane in downtown Boise as a crowd counts down the end of the year. This time the event is moving a few blocks to the small park in front of the state Capitol building.
