Master of Ceremonies Clay Logan addresses
crowds at 2007's "Possum Drop"
The opossum is not actually "dropped", it is lowered with great care. We

any injury or traumatize God's creature of the night.
Welcome to Beautiful
Downtown Brasstown, North Carolina- "Opossum Capital of the World!"...Population
240, Been the same for 100 years or more. Some lady gets pregnant - some
guy leaves town. Used to be the "Moonshine Capital of the South", but not
anymore, it has gone to pot.
The most exciting thing that we do in Brasstown,
besides going to the John C. Campbell Folk School and dance with the pretty
Danish girl, is "Lowering the Opossum on New Year's Eve." If New York can
drop a "Ball", Georgia can drop a "Peach", then we can lower the Opossum."
exciting than when the hogs ate Granny!"
