Wetumpka brings in NYE with Meteor Drop


The City of Wetumpka brought in the New Year with their Meteor Drop.

At the Meteor Drop there was something for everyone to enjoy from a live band playing as well as activities.

Event organizers say the meteor has a significant meaning for the city of Wetumpka. When dinosaurs walked the Earth, 84 million years ago, a Meteor the size of Bryant-Denny  or Jordan-Hare Stadium penetrated 2,000 feet into the coastal area of the United States at Wetumpka and created a 2.3 billion ton TNT explosion which is equivalent to 175,000 Hiroshima size Nuclear Bomb.
