ATLANTA (AP) — The Peach Drop is moving back to Underground Atlanta.

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms confirmed Wednesday that the city’s New Year’s Eve celebration will return to Underground Atlanta after moving to Woodruff Park last year.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the move to the park just north of Underground Atlanta came after more than 25 years of merriment at Underground.

Details about this year’s downtown celebration have not been released, but officials have historically held a large party with music, food and the lowering of the 800-pound (363-kilogram) peach at midnight. Thousands of people usually attend to ring in the new year.
