The Flagstaff Great Pinecone Drop is cherished and traditional, this year being shown only Virtual. So please plan to carry-out and settle in, this year’s Great Pinecone Drop will be welcomed from home with a grin! Farewell 2020, we’re ready to let you go, 2021 is welcomed with a big hello.
The Great Pinecone Drop became Flagstaff’s New Year’s Eve tradition in 1999, when the Weatherford Hotel rang in the new millennium and honored the Hotel’s 100-year anniversary. Since then, thousands gather in the streets for the countdown into the New Year and the lowering of the Pinecone followed by a brief fireworks display.
For more than 100 years, the Weatherford Hotel has punctuated the Flagstaff skyline, enduring many changes and historical milestones.
