TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The All-America City will welcome in 2020 with a new event downtown.
On Thursday the Downtown Tupelo Main Street Association announced plans for a New Year’s Eve event to take place in Fairpark.
The event will include a variety of activities, including games, vendors and music.
Debbie Brangenberg, executive director of the Main Street Association, said the event hopes to incorporate the downtown restaurants.
The night will end with fireworks and a ball drop.
However, the design for the ball has not been completed.
