Flagstaff is a fantastic place to spend New Year's Eve! Every year the Pine Cone Drop at the Weatherford Hotel brings together Flagstaff locals and visitors into the new year with fireworks, cheering, dancing in the street and yes, a bit of shivering in the cold. EXCEPT FOR THIS YEAR. The 2021 Great Pinecone Drop at the Weatherford Hotel in Flagstaff will be virtual. No gathering on the streets of downtown Flagstaff is allowed, but revelers can join in from the comfort of their own homes this year.
