I just found this picture from the famous New Year's Eve Possom Drop at the Citgo station in Brasstown. My friend and I attended that year. It was packed as shown here...over 1500 people from Ga. S.C., Tenn and N.C. and farther. It was a blast. Hot cocoa and cider available free all evening. At a few seconds before midnight the count down began as the possom, in his gilded cage, was slowly lowered to the ground. The evening concluded with a spectacular fireworks. Only in the mountains.
