Meat us in Elmore for the wurst event of the year! The sausage drop is celebrated every 5 years at Depot Park on New Year’s Eve. The next sausage drop will be in 2015 and more information will be on the way in 2014. Three of the events that will be happening are the dog costume contest, raw-sausage throwing contest, and the sausage eating contest. Each activity starts at the beginning of an hour between 9 and midnight. The brightly lit sausage then drops at midnight concluding the event. All sausage is provided in thanks to Tank’s Meats.

Elmore is known for their meat thanks to Tank’s which is how this celebration came to be on New Years. Some towns have fake walleyes, pinecones, giant pickles, possums, drag queens, bologna, and balls to drop, while Elmore has its giant tube of stuffed meat to drop.
