David Woodhead announced today that 2021 will indeed be ushered in on March 20th with his annual ball drop from the silos on 5th Avenue South. Previously, Mr. Woodhead postponed the event due to concerns about the pandemic. Since then, Governor Brad Little has softened his crowd size limitations and many Idahoans have been inoculated, including Mr. Woodhead himself.
We’ll drop the ball at 9pm from the silos on 5th Avenue South. "Since we changed the date of new year, we felt entitled to change the time, too," Mr. Woodhead explained. He went on to say that dropping the ball earlier than the usual midnight dropping would allow more people to watch it.
Those who plan to attend the event are encouraged to practice the safety measures the CDC has recommended for gatherings. Wear a mask, socially distance from others, and do not attend if you have a fever or feel sick. Unimmunized attendees are advised to watch the drop from within their vehicles or from a reasonable distance away from the silos.
Plans for the event are still developing. The Prairie Falcon Audubon Society may help us celebrate World Sparrow Day. Someone is working on a skit to commemorate Extraterrestrial Abduction Day. And Whiskey Creek is considering sponsoring National Corn Dog Day. Anyone interested in the sponsorship of the International Day of Happiness, National Quilting Day, Earth Day, or the Spring Equinox should contact Mr. Woodhead by email: email@example.com.
