Sparked by an interest in the area's gold history, Marion has created an enthusiastic following of revelers celebrating New Year's Eve with a Gold Nugget Drop. This street party is family-friendly with a scavenger hunt, costume contest, and Resolution Run 5k. Music, food, and craft vendors will be scattered throughout The 310 District of downtown Marion. Restaurants, breweries, the meadery, and music hall will be open featuring their own New Year's Eve specials. At the end of the night, this giant golden nugget descends from the sky onto a ten-foot-wide, Mr. Bob's Donut! The spectacular gold nugget was created by local metal artists at Turtle Laboratories. Before heading home, pick up free coffee and donut slices.
