Rome Floyd Parks and Recreation –
The countdown is on for the beginning of 2023 and the New Year’s Eve Fireworks Extravaganza presented by Atrium Health Floyd. The fireworks show is set to begin at approximately 7 p.m., and the show should last about 13 minutes. Like the July 4th show, the display will be shot from the top of Jackson Hill, meaning it will be viewable from most of Rome. People can get great views all along the levee, on Broad Street, along both pedestrian bridges downtown, and just about anywhere, you can see the large American flag flying above Jackson Hill. While there won’t be any activities that evening in Ridge Ferry Park, businesses throughout Rome will be open and celebrating New Year’s Eve. The parking lot of the Rome Civic Center will be closed due to its proximity to Jackson Hill. The trails on Jackson Hill will also be closed. When parking, be sure to use public lots. Several parking lots near Jackson Hill are reserved for local businesses and their customers. Those lots have signs indicating they will tow cars parked and not utilizing the businesses. In past years, some motorists stopped on the road or on the side of the road during the fireworks show which causes traffic problems and is a safety issue. Please refrain from stopping on the road and find a safe location off of the roadway to park and watch the show.
