Pop-n-Drop, Marion

As one of the nation’s largest popcorn growing hubs, Marion is proud of its snack food reputation – just part of the reason the town drops a giant popcorn ball from the sky each New Year’s Eve. Attendees will love the free popcorn and hot chocolate through midnight, not to mention the family-friendly entertainment and impressive fireworks display to kick off 2019.

Walleye Madness, Port Clinton

Forget watching the glittering ball drop in New York City and instead witness a 20-foot-long, 600-pound fiberglass fish drop from the sky at the stroke of midnight. Held along Ohio’s Lake Erie shoreline in Port Clinton, known as the “Walleye Capital of the World,” this truly one-of-a-kind celebration boasts live entertainment, family-friendly activities, and all things walleye – from walleye chowder to walleye popcorn to walleye wine.
