Burgaw cancels NYE Blueberry Drop

SOUTHEASTERN N.C. — A popular event in the greater Cape Fear region will not be ringing in 2023 as planned.

In Burgaw, the fifth annual Blueberry Drop has been canceled due to inclement weather projected for Dec. 31; there is a 60 percent chance of showers during the afternoon into the evening. The committee met Saturday morning to make the final call, according to a press release.

“We have closely monitored the forecast for several days, and it has remained consistent, calling for rain through most of the event time frame with the threat of possible thunderstorms,” Cody Suggs, Burgaw Parks & Recreation director, said in the release. “Due to all the aspects of the event, weather poses a huge disruption to safety, our overall success of the event, and the ability to provide a full experience,”

The Ace Party Band was scheduled to play the event, which the committee is working with to secure a new date, either as part of the 2023 Summer on the Square concert series or next year’s ew Year’s Eve Blueberry Drop.

As well, fireworks will be rescheduled for next New Year’s Eve.
