Crab pot drop will ring in the New Year

By Lora Chance - email

BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) - If you're looking for a non-traditional way to ring in the new year, Bluffton is the place to be.

The Old Town Dispensary on Captain's Cove Road is holding its first ever New Year's Eve Crab Pot Drop. A local artist is making the crab pot out of old building materials. Similar to the ball drop in Times Square, organizers will hoist the pot 60 feet and drop it.

The Crab Pot Drop countdown begins Friday at 6 p.m. Palm Key Catering will serve Lowcountry Boil and barbecue. There will be live entertainment and hats and horns for all.
